Titled the “Best of Global Modest Fashion,” the runway show will take place at Victoria House in the UK capital’s classy Bloomsbury district and will feature designs by Al-Gabbani, Fatima Mohsin, House of Lancry, Q Label, Nasiba Hafez, 1001 Abayas and Rouge Couture.
Founded by the leading modest fashion e-retailer Haute Elan in 2017, LMFW is an international platform for modest wear designers to showcase their collections on the runway.
This year’s event took place from Feb. 17-18 and saw two days of seminars, runway shows and panel discussions on modest fashion.
“I want to say a very big thank you to the @hauteelan team for bringing modest fashion to the forefront…
This is truly a beautiful moment for us all. And a very big thank you to @nichearabia @shoesanddrama for representing me alongside other great designers. Thank you for all your support and most of all, Alhamdillah,” Al-Gabbani posted on social media before the show.
Al-Gabbani’s fashion brand boasts thoughtfully-designed evening gowns, jalabiyas and abayas. Many of the colorful, vibrant designs are created using printed silk, embedded with crystals — it is Al-Gabbani’s signature style and it has been a hit with her style-savvy fans.
