Dubai-based fitness guru, model, and TV presenter Rania Gamal talks about three of the best reasons why wearing abaya, being modern and yet staying modest is the new trend in the society, not only in the Middle East, but also all over the world.
“From humongous brands launching global fashion campaigns to numerous celebrities including Western social influencers wearing abaya and choosing hijab fashion, it is undeniable that being modest is the newest trend of fashion” says Rania Gamal who listed 3 of the reasons why Abaya and Hijab fashion has conquered the world.
1) Secret is the new sexy
Decency is always sexy. Hiding something for the creativity of the beholder is a brilliant strategy to bring the horizons of sexiness and beauty to the spectacular level of imagination. Revealing everything all the time might bore the fashion world.
2) Confidence in comfort
Silky, flowing satin or huggable cottony fabric abayas are best worn for any time of the day. It is one of the dresses in the world that you can wear for any occasion without the dilemma of being underdress or overdress. Whether any size or any shape, abayas will surely celebrate the power and confidence of being a woman.
3) Respecting the culture
The UAE and the Muslim community has a very rich culture, engraved and embossed in the hearts of many women and passed on to different generations. From plain black to dazzling hues and colour palettes, the abayas have grown into a metamorphosis of passionate evolution yet maintaining the respect for the heritage of Muslim traditions.
