British modest fashion retailer Jilbabs ‘R’ Us marked World Hijab Day (WHD) with a fun day for the entire family at its flagship store in East Shopping Centre, located in the heart of London’s Green Street.
The free event was attended and supported by a number of popular British Muslim bloggers like Romy Ahmed, Sebina Hussain, Ezzakins, Queen of Sabba, Bubble Gum Hijab and Romy Ahmed, to name a few. Featuring hijab tutorials, discussions, henna and face painting, there was also an installation set up, titled the ‘Hijab Thought Tree’, for shoppers to share and write their thoughts on what the hijab meant to them.
Aisha Oomerjee, Director at Jilbabs ‘R’ Us said: “The event’s been about awareness of the hijab and we hope we’ve made more people aware of World Hijab Day. We’ve had a fantastic turnout and certainly those who perhaps didn’t know much about the hijab, will maybe now go home and read more about it.”
I hope you enjoy reading the magazine, as much as I loved sharing the hidden fashion gems and supporting women promoting their fashion business. I'm always on the lookout for inspirational women running or thinking of starting up a fashion business.
