Amal Murad and Arwa'a Abaya

Amal Murad is a talented abaya designer from the UAE, whose work is frequently on the runways at Dubai Fashion Week (see her website for photos). Below is a recent interview of hers, and unfortunately it's in Arabic, but you can forward to 5:15 to see some video footage of her runway shows:



Amal has also recently been involved in judging an abaya design competition called Arwa'a Abaya on MBC. You can watch the episodes on the persilabayaworld YouTube channel; this is part 1 of the finale, what did you think of the designs?

The sister has great taste in color and design. I liked the first abaya on the runway and what she is wearing on the show in the first video. Im not too keen on the over-sized berets and exposed necks.

Yeah... the oversized berets aren't my fav either. And some of the designs are a bit eeee! Like the massive houndstooth shawl thing.

But there were some lovely, elegant designs!

If I had to walk like one of those models I'd fall on my head. But they sure do make the abayas flow!

Tartan shower caps? Really?! I wonder if they're the hijabi equivalent of the outrageous catwalk hairstyles. Meant purely for theatrical effect - 'don't try this at home'!
