It’s hard to believe that Eid is just a few days away! This year, Ramzan has flown by – at least for us – and it’s truly made us feel grateful for our health and all that we have. In the spirit of Ramzan, we want to highlight some of our favourite women-led businesses that are making Eid fashion accessible and stylish! All of these options are available online and run by some powerful female bosses – they’re the perfect inspiration! Take a look below:
It’s no surprise that Ammara Khan is one of our favourite designers. Her cuts, silhouettes and attention to detail make her outfits top notch! Our pick for Eid is this gorgeous tea pink ensemble that’s perfect for the summer weather. The asymmetrical cut and intricate embroidery give it a modern look while keeping in line with the elegance that Ammara Khan is known for!
What we love about Farnaz Mustafa’s Eid collection is just how versatile it is. This pale lavender combo exudes comfort while being totally chic. Not only is it a great pick for Eid, it’ll work just as well at a work event or a dinner with friends! And the breezy silhouette makes this the perfect choice for a summer soiree.
L’atelier De Sehrish
Sehrish Rehan, of L’atelier De Sehrish, has made sure our love of pastels runs strong with her new Eid collection. A personal favourite of ours is this pale pink net kurta and shalwar look. We love the fact that shalwars are back in fashion and the intricacy and detailing on this ensemble are to die for! This is definitely a go-to outfit for anyone who loves that truly feminine and graceful look.
Nadia Khan Studio
We love it when desi fashion is given a contemporary and refreshed feel and that’s exactly what Nadia Khan does! Her designs are perfect for those looking for a modern and cool take on fashion and this vibrant red shalwar set is no different. It has that cozy chic vibe that so many of us love, and is a great pick for an Eid lunch at home. It’s effortless and stunning at the same time!
Shahkaar by Adila
While the pieces are made-to-order, and it might be too late to shop them this Eid (still try though) here’s a brand we’d like you to know about. Not only are their block printed pieces absolutely beautiful, they also support local crafts, fair wages and slow fashion. All the need of the hour right now, are we right?
If you’re looking for gorgeous handwoven kurtas, look no further than Zarih. Their handiwork is impeccable and these cotton silk ensembles with fine zarih embroidery are proof of that! Their tailoring and high-quality materials make them a great option for your Eid looks. Trust us, you won’t regret it!
This female-run small business has quickly become one of our go-to brands for minimal Eastern looks. Bare Basics specialises in minimal pret wear, going for that subtle and breezy look. This green karandi kurta is a great choice for a breeze Eid in the summer heat. It’ll keep you look chic and stylish while being comfortably cool! And they’re super affordable – so what are you waiting for?
This Mina Hasan ensemble screams summer with its vibrancy. If you are looking for a compromise between a modern and traditional outfit, this is it. The detailing on the sleeves along with the pleats on the shirt compliment one another, and make for the perfect easy breezy outfit!
Farah Talib Aziz
If there’s anyone who does vibrant colours and intricate embellishments well, it’s Farah Talib Aziz. This phenomenon of a designer needs no introduction! But if you need any convincing, this year’s Eid collection is proof of her prowess. This cool mint and yellow tunic is a breath of fresh air and donning it for Eid will definitely make you feel energised and vibrant. With this look, you won’t need to do much else and honestly, that’s a great thing!
Nada Shah Designs
Nada Shah has given simple a new meaning. Her take on semi formals involves sheer sleeves, neutral tones and long silhouettes. This grey toned piece has all that and monochromatic buttons, fringe detailing, plus is a great colour to help you beat the heat.
House Of Farah V
This angrakha kurti from House Of Farah V has us reminiscent for the shaadi season with its gold detailing and luxurious green colour. We all are social distancing this Eid (hopefully!), but that doesn’t mean we can’t wear something that makes us feel grand!
Nazli Akbar is a crowd favourite during Eid, and is known for her pastel colours and lace detailing. We all need a white kurti in our wardrobe, and our pick for this Eid delivers on everything a white kurti should be – feminine, classy and simple!
No one does classic cuts and traditional wear quite like Zara Shahjahan. She’s one of our absolute favourites and with good reason. Her clothes invoke that old-world charm that we love, especially on Eid. This minimal white chikan kurta is a great example of why we love her simple elegance and you will too. Just give us white for days and we’ll rest happy!
Ansab Jahangir has become a household name in Pakistani fashion, dressing celebrities such as Ayeza Khan, Sana Javed and Amna Ilyas. And her Eid collection is just another show of her impeccable designs. This pink chikankari kurta is a great option for an Eid dinner or lunch and is versatile enough to be dressed up or down! After all, if Ayeza Khan approves it, then you definitely need to get it!
The Saari Girl
If you want to switch things up this Eid and wear something completely unique, why not opt for a sari? The Saari Girl gives us endless options on amazing saris that are perfect for any occasion. Our pick for Eid is this bright yellow and navy blue combination with fine gold zarih embroidery. It’s different, vibrant and stylish and will definitely be a hit on Eid! And the best part is that 5% of all sales are donated. What could be better!
