Vela Clothing

6 Dec

Assalaam Alaykum my sista’s,

I hope you’re all in good health Insha’Allah! Let me introduce to you another amazing new UK clothing line that actually launched on the web today, they are called Vela Clothing. 

I have had the pleasure and honor of reviewing the website and clothing before the launch. They sell everything from hijabs to wedding gowns, abaya’s, bags and also some snazzy evening sandals. Vela Clothing’s inspiration came from the elegance of women in Turkey which they transformed into modest and professional abaya’s for women in Britain and in the West.

One of my favorite pieces is the pink taffeta wedding gown! I would wear it with a light pink undershirt and spruce it up with a fancy hijab and some type of head-piece for drama!! They also sell gorgeous Turkish hijabs that you can mix and match with the abaya’s. If you are going to a ladies party, then you can get away with wearing the gown without much coverage, but if you’re like me, and prefer to cover your arms, throw on a shawl or a shrug/bolero. If you are the bride or are attending a wedding, buy an undershirt fabricated in stretch rayon or polyester for a slight shine effect to put the outfit together.

Please join Vela Clothing on Facebook, follow them on Twitter and don’t forget to register on their website at www.velaclothing.co.uk site for email updates. They will be having promotions and who knows, you may be the lucky winner!!

Amal Murad, abaya fashion designer

23 Jun

Amal Murad is a UAE abaya fashion designer. Her designs are amazing, I love her work!!! She incorporates the latest fashion trends into her designs, adds a touch of color, or print to make the most stunning styles! She is an inspiration to me. Although I myself don’t wear abaya’s, her designs make me want to wear them!! Some time in the near future one of Amal Murad’s abaya’s will make its way into my closet. Here are some of her designs shown during Dubai fashion week 2010. Does anyone out there already own a designer piece by Amal Murad? If you do, please free to send a picture of you wearing it!
