Halima Aden x Modanisa

Isn’t she the cutest? Supermodel Halima Aden has collaborated with modest fashion e-tailer giant Modanisa to create a line of head-turning hijabs. The ravishing line of headscarves, shawls, and “instant scarves” – a.k.a turbans – consists of 47 pieces that offer a mix of ready-to-wear options to sport beyond the Holy month.

With prices starting at $30 for the basic crepe shawl, monogrammed with the 21-year-old model’s name, this is possibly the best way to compliment your Ramadan – or Eid – outfit.

Tiffany & Co. x Yasmin Al Mulla

One of the world’s most iconic jewellery brands, Tiffany & Co., has marked the Ramadan season with a collaboration with Yasmin Al Mulla. The emerging, Dubai-based fashion designer – who operates under the name YNM – has worked on a whimsical six-piece collection comprised of Spanish jacquard kaftans and Japanese silk dresses.

YNM’s collection of pastel-hued dresses and a striking red number – beautifully accessorised by timeless Tiffany & Co. jewels, including the striking 18-carat flames diamond earrings designed by Jean Schlumberger – strikes the perfect balance between modest and modern.

The Spanish high street brand has embraced Spring Summer 19’s most daring trend: the animal print. Infused with a simple tie-dye print and soft earthy tones, Mango found the winning formula to dapper, modest Ramadan style. The intricately designed collection comes in an array of fabrics, all summer friendly, to help you cope with the UAE’s harsh heat. Think long-sleeved dresses, loose trousers, maxi skirts, kaftans, and kimonos, in tens of different styles and patterns to choose from.
