Imaan Collections

Imaan Collections, designed by Sophia Kara aims to "fuse western fashion with modesty". I really like the fact that she has broken away from the traditional black and uses bold colours like pink, green and yellow in her jilbabs. Here are pictures from the launch of the collection in 2006, which was held at the Empire in Leicester. You can see the rest here:

In March 2007, Imaan Collections held a charity fashion show in aid of Ansaar, which you can read about here.

These are pictures from the Spring/Summer 2008 show. The BBC also ran a short interview with Sophia here. I love the purple and gray combo!

i know sophie personally she is amazing works full time and designs jilbabs that are modern and classy, and is so down to earth she had a piece in the leicester mercury a few weeks ago and we all said she should have been on the women in black series, such a shame she missed out on that

I'm just pleased to see British designers make good quality stylish abaya's, it would defo make it easier for me to find stuff I can wear.

Umm Salihah, me too, we need more of them!
