The 2nd Annual Muslimah Fashion Show & Bazaar was held on Sunday, Ocotber 26 at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald in Edmonton, Alberta. I attended this event in support of my friend, Mona Ismaeil, as her collection of hijabs  from her shop, Modern Hejab, were showcased on the runway at the event.

I also attended this show as a blogger, and had the great opportunity of networking with some inspiring Muslimahs!

The Fashion Show:
The fashion show featured the latest Fall collection from Wedad Amiri’s modest clothing label, Afflatus Hijab. Wedad’s use of velvet in her pieces gave her clothing line a luxurious feel, and yet the classic silhouettes of her skirts added to the elegance of her entire collection.  I love how the maxi skirts can be worn casually, or formally; and all the skirts and dresses were long in length – which is perfect for Muslimahs! To view more items from the Afflatus Hijab collection, please visit the website at


As mentioned previously, also on the runway was Mona Ismaeil’s collection, Modern Hejab. The collection consisted of a beautiful arabic calligraphy dress, in addition to gorgeous hijabs that come in a variety of colours and textures. Modern Hejab also had a stall at the event, which displayed gorgeous clutch bags, dresses, and hijabs! Please check out Modern Hejab’s  website or phone (780) 668-0082.

Guest Speaker:

The special guest at this year’s event was Lidia Handous, a successful lawyer within the community. Lidia spoke about overcoming the obstacles of becoming a lawyer within the Islamic community in addition to describing her experience a woman working in a male dominated sector. Masha’Allah, Lidia’s speech was enriched with powerful words of encouragement; she did a fantastic job of conveying the message of what it is like to be a strong Muslimah no matter what way of life you choose for yourself!

Final Thoughts

Overall, The 2nd Annual Muslimah Fashion Show & Bazaar was full of excitement, modest designs, and confident women with a strong business sense!
