The Hijab Centre at the 2010 Asian Wedding Lifestyle and Fashion Exhibition in Manchester

Now this is a first for asian fashion blog, and I think it's a first for The Asian Wedding Lifestyle and Fashion Exhibition too - a hijab collection on the catwalk! It was the Hijab Centre in Blackburn who stepped up and decided to showcase their collection at this event.

They didn't have any full bridal outfits, but their collection of embroidered abayas and cover-ups held their own against the other exhibitors on the day. They used floaty fabrics and shapes to create a feminine but modest look, my only complaint was that nearly everything was black!




This last outfit was my favourite, I liked the mixture of orange and black and I think the styling of it all works really well!

I only viewed the first catwalk show, but The Hijab Centre have uploaded some video's of the show to their youtube page showing some different outfits which they showcased at the other catwalk shows over the weekend.

I'm loving ther bolero jacket in this video:

  1. I think I like the one feature in the second pic the best. I'm pretty boring when it comes to all the extra designs. I don't like how the abayas are so short on some of the models, I feel they are most elegant when they drape to the floor.

  2. The models were much taller than we atually expected on the day wheras we tailor make all of these abayas to a draping length usually. you can visit our facebook page where the rest of our collection is available to view,
