Luton’s Fatima offers something unique in one of the most prominent Asian high streets called Bury Park. Unlike most outlets in Luton Fatima sells various designers such as; Asim Jofa, Cineta, Lala, Sana Safinaz and Rama to mention a few.
When visiting Fatima l was excited to see they sold Maria.B lawn collection. The lady was very helpful and showed Sid and me Maria.B lawn catalogue collection. My favourite was black and cream damask style fabric, l can see why many people love lawn the fabric is super soft and so comfy.
Pakistan Fashion Week 2013 designer, Sana Safinaz silk collection features in Fatima. The patterns reminded me of the fabrics l saw at Pakistan Fashion Week. Safinaz is one of my favourite Asian designers because her collections are always modern and innovative.
It was refreshing to find a shop that sells casual and every day traditional designer Asian fashion at all different prices from £30 - £95.
Fatima also have the latest party wear fashion trends such as designer velvet garments and black gold dresses. There is a lot to pick from with Fatima.
It has to be mentioned Fatima only sell the unstitched fabric, which can be seen as a disadvantage for some. I prefer it as l normally spot fabric l love but not in the design and tailoring l would of sewn it. In addition, l can add other pieces of fabric to make it even moire unique.
What’s even better is you can window shop and buy with one click from their website www.fatimadesigner.co.uk.
I would say Fatima is definitely worth a visit and there’s a lot of Asian inspiration to be gained. I would suggest visiting their website to get a taste of what they have to offer and pop in to the shop. Plus in the shop you have a wide selection of shoes to match with your outfits which is always an advantage as you don’t have to go far to complete your outfit.
Happy Asian dress Shopping!
