The gorgeous ‘Abaya’ collection contains hijabs (scarves) and abayas (long, loose dresses). It captures the Arabian culture meeting the aesthetics of the Sicilian Fashion house. The light, exclusive charmeuse fabrics with black lace details are perfect for Muslim women with a taste for luxury fashion. A little lemon detail and printed daisies and roses add a classic and clean take to the collection that will with any doubt be welcomed with open arms.
The question that comes to our mind now is, who will be next in line to create a collection for the Middle Eastern market?
