With the recent wave of hijabi fashion bloggers and influencers, all eyes are on the modest fashion industry. These ladies have proven to be game changers, leaving their mark on the world. But when do they need to look their best? That would be on Eid al-Fitr, a holiday which consists of a three-day celebration after the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan. Here is your guide on how to dress up on this joyous occasion.

Dubai

The Modist

Recently launched, The Modist has proven to be the destination for modest luxury dressers worldwide. With local names such as Madiya Al Sharqi, Sandra Mansour, and Nathalie Trad, plus international brands such as 3.1 Phillip Lim, it is no surprise that The Modist is a success.
