Chic Black Monday: Abaya Fashion Show

Posted by Kero at Monday, April 11, 2011
It was November last year when I first witnessed an Abaya Fashion Show at The Dubai Mall. The abaya or cloak is a long over-garment considered a national dress for women in United Arab Emirates.

I've always wondered what they were called. I hope I can get to buy an abaya if we get a chance to visit the UAE to serve as a souvenir. I love the intricate designs. I know I won't be able to wear it here though so I'd be happy to just pose with it, even just once :)

Thanks so much for joining Chic in Black Monday! Looking forward to more Chic-ness in the coming weeks!

I missed seeing women in abaya. Too bad I never thought of buying one for a keepsake!

It's nice to see how abaya evolved into fashion dress.

Gone are the days when Mid eastern woman will don a typical abaya, bow they are also into fashion and trends.
