The 2nd Annual Muslimah Fashion Show & Bazaar

image

The 2nd Annual Muslimah Fashion Show & Bazaar was held on Sunday, Ocotber 26 at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald in Edmonton, Alberta. I attended this event in support of my friend, Mona Ismaeil, as her collection of hijabs  from her shop, Modern Hejab, were showcased on the runway at the event.

I also attended this show as a blogger, and had the great opportunity of networking with some inspiring Muslimahs!

The Fashion Show:
The fashion show featured the latest Fall collection from Wedad Amiri’s modest clothing label, Afflatus Hijab. Wedad’s use of velvet in her pieces gave her clothing line a luxurious feel, and yet the classic silhouettes of her skirts added to the elegance of her entire collection.  I love how the maxi skirts can be worn casually, or formally; and all the skirts and dresses were long in length – which is perfect for Muslimahs! To view more items from the Afflatus Hijab collection, please visit the website at http://www.afflatushijab.com/.

As mentioned previously, also on the runway was Mona Ismaeil’s collection, Modern Hejab. The collection consisted of a beautiful arabic calligraphy dress, in addition to gorgeous hijabs that come in a variety of colours and textures. Modern Hejab also had a stall at the event, which displayed gorgeous clutch bags, dresses, and hijabs! Please check out Modern Hejab’s  website http://www.modernhejab.com or phone (780) 668-0082.

Guest Speaker:

The special guest at this year’s event was Lidia Handous, a successful lawyer within the community. Lidia spoke about overcoming the obstacles of becoming a lawyer within the Islamic community in addition to describing her experience a woman working in a male dominated sector. Masha’Allah, Lidia’s speech was enriched with powerful words of encouragement; she did a fantastic job of conveying the message of what it is like to be a strong Muslimah no matter what way of life you choose for yourself!

Final Thoughts

Overall, The 2nd Annual Muslimah Fashion Show & Bazaar was full of excitement, modest designs, and confident women with a strong business sense!
