KARACHI: Modeste Abayas to hosts exhibition of Shatha Collection with Mirror Work and rich embroidery Abayas from 21st until 23rd October, 2019 in Khayaban e Badban, DHA, Karachi
Modeste Abayas takes inspiration from the French word “modeste” meaning humility and modesty, a virtue associated with women in Islam.
Modeste Abayas originated in 2017 with a varied range of abayas for women to adorn themselves in. Abayas which were synonymous with the colour black till the recent past have been reinvented by Sabeen Rabbani, owner of Modeste Abayas. She has introduced several collections of abayas in a pallet of varied colours from dark shades to pastels as well as with modern cuts and attractive embellishments. She tailors her abayas to the current fashions in clothing so that Abaya clad women can enjoy the swag of latest trends as well and not feel isolated because of their attire. It gives modest women a refreshing break from the monotonous black cloaks with the excitement of dressing up in tune with modern trends.
Modeste Abayas have a varied collection of abayas with heavily worked and embroidered ones to athelesuire ones to some with the traditional work and shaded pieces. The Abayas can be worn to formal occasions as well as informal gatherings. It is also a great buy for women frequenting gyms looking for an overall garment to shroud themselves in transit. Overall it’s a great buy to find its way into the closet of all women.
