Being a woman who wears an ‘Abaya herself I like to keep on top of Abaya & Hijab trends.
Just as I can spend hours and hours traipsing around town shopping till my feet scream in agony, I can similarly squander away hours browsing through online Abaya fashion – and I must confess, more often than not I find myself in a familiar sticky situation.
Ever recall yourself as a young child with your nose pressed tight against the ominous glass windows of a glorious sweet shop? Tummy growling, eyes as large as saucers gazing onto an array of colourful sweet treats – that exhilarating sense of excitement, trepidation and longing buzzing through your entire being?
Well…with the advent of the internet and the evolution of Abaya fashion I find myself in exactly the same situation. Yes i’ve grown up but not much has changed – except that Abayas are my new object of desire..
My recent object…perhaps I should says objects…of desire are the Abaayaat from the newest Hesseh Haute Couture Collection. Like many other homegrown couture designers Hessa al-Obaidilis journey began at home in 2008.
“I realized that wherever I go, women would constantly ask me where I made my Abaya.” says Hessa.
This black silk abaya layered with a nude and lace accent will leave you feeling just like a princess…
Gold with a pop of turqoise chiffon. I dare you to find a fault.
This is definitely one of my favourites..no wait, thats a lie, all of the ones i’ve shortpicked are my favourites. I love the black lace complimenting the grey silk and drape. Classy!
I can’t even string up a comment for this. Just breath-taking.
