Abatti Fashion Show – Dubai

Since it’s Ramadan, the Abaya and Jalabiya attire is the right time of the month to wear!

At the beginning of the year I attended a fashion show in Dubai at the Armani Hotel held by designer Lamya Abedin behind the brand Queen of Spades.

She is well known for not designing the traditional Abaya! Adding a twist and creating a stylish and fashionable Abayas that can be relatable to all cultures – it could be a kaftan, an evening dress or worn over a figure hugging dress as a statement cover up.

The Abaya’s labeled ‘Abatti’ which translates to (My Abaya) – at the fashion show were a mix up of so many different styles and fabrics, such as embroidery, lace, sheer, floral, cultured prints and some accessorized with waist belts and large bows – a wide exotic selection that appeals to all.

The energy at the catwalk was marvellous, everyone was admiring each piece -the models had dramatic big hair and the final walk was by the famous Dubai based beauty bloggers and sisters Huda Beauty and Mona Kattan.

I was mesmerised by all the abayas at the fashion show.  Shortly after the event, I went over to Sofia’s (@SofiaDCollection) show room and tried on one of her amazing Abaya designs.
