Designer: Ghada Al Sairafi

These abayas and jalabiyas are the work of Saudi designer Ghada Al Sairafi. I can't find much information or a website for her unfortunately! Are you loving the Kimono-inspired dresses?

i love them... but it is sad to see a designer wearing hijab that is having a show and not using hijab at all or properly on the runway. great clothing though

I don't see a point having a mythical creature like a dragon printed on anything related to hijaab or abaya.The kimono style itself is not such a bad idea though.Also a rule of thumb never wear your belt too low on a dress or abaya;it simply fattens you up (check picture 4 to see what I am talking about).

i agree with anonymous - fact is the dragon motifs not applicable to muslim dress code.

Hijab Chic, Basbousa, Sabia, :)

Ange, I don't think it's sad at all. The abayas are shown with headscarves, albeit half-on, though that's the same with all Gulf abaya shows. The other outfits are jalabiyas which don't necessarily have to be worn with hijab.

Manja, there's plenty more! Click on the 'designers' label to see them.

Anon 1 and iza, I agree with you about the dragon, and the tiger on the abaya for that matter. Don't go there!
