Think Hanayen, Beige, Amal Al Raisi, and more.

Can you believe it’s been a year since London’s first Modest Fashion Week? Since then, the show has travelled to Istanbul and here to Dubai, but now it’s going back to where it all began.

This coming weekend will see the return of LMFW, so we’ve rounded up all the local designers you need to know about.

Safe to say it’s a pretty packed schedule. You can check out the exact timings here – if you’re able to attend, we’re more than a little jealous.

Our favourite looks from Dubai’s first Modest Fashion Week
London Fashion Week just held its first-ever ‘modest’ show




Beige by name, this Dubai label’s designs are anything but. Think long, fluid lines and architectural shapes. Inspired by the beauty of the desert, Beige will present its spring summer 2018 and Ramadan collections at London’s Victoria House.

Amal Al Raisi

Fans of feminine, flowing shapes will find a lot to love in Omani designer Amal Al Raisi’s SS18 collection. These dresses are romantic and so, so pretty.


This Dubai label has been making abayas and sheilas since 1990. Expect luxurious embroidery and lush fabrics.

Nashiba Hafiz 

We can’t wait to see what this print-heavy Saudi label brings to the table. Hafiz describes her customer as well-travelled and with a unique sense of style, so it’s sure to be a fun show.

Rouge Couture

Emirati designer Sara Al Madani started her label when she was just 15. We can’t wait to see what she brings to the table this time around.

Samah Abayas

This Saudi abaya label is noted for its use of colour and embroidery. There’s always a gorgeous detail to spot.

Toby by Hatem Alakeel

This Saudi brand sells itself as traditional elegance meets high fashion, which sounds great to us. We love this mustard and navy combo.

London Modest Fashion Week runs February 17-18 at London’s Victoria House in Bloomsbury Square. Tickets available here
