Rise Of Headscarves Brand in Malaysia

Wednesday, May 11, 2016

    Assalamualaikum and hello lovelies.

Living in 2016, there are MANY, I mean many headscarves brand that start to rise up and get a lot of attention for all the Malaysian ladies. (Me also included) *guilty* Well, since I got a bit of a gap time before I'll enter university, I actually discovered that there are really various types of headscarves brands sold in Malaysia which equal to RIP money for all the husbands out there. When I grew up, I only knew one type of headscarf which is Tudung Bawal (Voile Scarf). (Tudung means headscarf in Malay.) Ending primary school with a rising of instant scarves which we call, tudung sarung or as my friend calls it 3 Second Scarves. We ladies just wear it like that and do a bit of adjust. Voila, you are ready to go.

Upon entering high school on 2011, long scarves (here we just called it shawl) started to gain popularity and was introduced with many and many style to wear. All I can remember that Hana Tajima (a british-japanese designer) style of wearing her scarves were very popular around that year. Last year, she collaborated with Uniqlo to produce her own line of lifewear. You can check it here: UNIQLO x Hana Tajima. All I remember that 5 years ago was when headscarves line started to grow like mushrooms where there were brands like Aidijuma, Fareeda, Bawal Exclusives and etc started. Many, huh?

Now in 2016, so many boutiques pop out of nowhere and sometimes, the price offered and all the discounts just makes me instantly raise my white flag. Oh why, oh god. Now there are also known brand that make their way up above all the scarves with their great advertisement. For example like Naelofar Hijab, Duckscarves, MumuScarves and etc. Sometimes, the name of the brand just sounds so cute. (Like mumuscarves, it sounds quite cute right? mumu..)

There are many more including the celebrities collaboration and stuff but it's okay because we got to support our local business right? Props to them! Not everyone will succeed internationally but some prove to do so. Well it means that my wallet hurting from all the cash just go out but never actually go in. :')

Now with Ramadan saying hi soon, people will busy preparing their Raya clothes and there will be more and more sale. More and more crying of the money exchanging hands. Oh my god. Anyway, this will be an introduction to anyone that will wearing headscarves soon. If God Wills. You got a lot of choices! If you are not from Malaysia, they mostly ship internationally! So no worries.

Which scarf is your favourite?

Muslim Lifestyle Show 2016 @ Olympia, London

Wednesday, May 04, 2016

    Assalamualaikum and hello lovelies.

On the 30th April, my mom and I went to Muslim Lifestyle Show at Olympia Central, London and this is my second fashion show. My first was during KLFW last year, I think.

I was really excited to come here because I don't know, I like to look at all the beautiful and unique clothes. The representative from Malaysia are Naelofar, Norish Kareem, Aidijuma & Blossom Box, Mara in Fashion, Imaan Boutique, Rina Salleh Clothing and Siti Khadijah. They are all amazing brands and their outfits are gorgeous on the runway. These are few of the clothes that I manage to snap while they are on the runway. Some of them walked quite fast though. When I took the pictures, they move.

Beware: Photo Spamming alert


KK (I forgot the full name. I think it's Khloe Kouture..)


I wanted to take picture with Neelofa (a Malaysian celebrity) but she didn't come on the 30th. She'll available on the 1st though but sadly I'm not. Just manage to snap her booth, well that's okay... :'(

I also bought Halal marshmallows there! It's really delicious and soft, but the vanilla one quite sweet for my tooth. Anyway, I hope there will be more Malaysia's brand export internationally. Seriously, I'm quite proud with the local brands in the fashion industry. They got really good stuffs. *Thumbs up*

I think that's all for today post! Sorry for the sudden hiatus. I'll be posting more before I hit college!
