UAE's top abaya and Sheila retailers Hanayen, displayed the spring/summer collection that featured 32 different looks spread over 16 ensembles. The brand strives to focus on the needs of the customer and designs abayas for all occasions and seasons.
With bold patterned cloth weaving in and out of the gaps in the abaya, the collection is a mix of the trendy and traditional.
Chains of coloured beads and bands of exquisite gold lace were used to embellish the loose flowing abayas.
Innovations included the 2-piece abaya for better mobility, poncho like tulle layers over the black robe, abayas draped like the Indian sari, outfits with tall stiff collars as well as abayas flowing open to reveal patterned pants.
In a unique twist, models donned satin stewardess-hats paired with draped shawls, re-enacting the iconic look of Emirates Airline stewardesses, paying homage to the airline.
Keeping in tune with the latest trends and colours of the spring, the outfits were decorated with colourful hexagonal and circular appliqués and thick bands of colour running through the fabric.
The Hanayen collection preserved the true elegance of the Arab woman, all the while remaining enchantingly fashionable.
