Oh wow, I haven’t blogged in agessss. And oh myyy, I cannot believe Ramadhan is almost over and that Raya is next week! Kenapa cepat sangat? Where did the time go?
Honestly, I’m not really looking forward to Raya this time around because, well, I’m still in confinement and because I’m still humongous and nothing looks good on me now (I look like 6-month pregnant, I kid you not).
But I did buy some Raya clothes for me and the kids, just in case I wanna go beraya. Oh, and some shawls! Pretty printed shawl and scarves from Ariani. I really love Ariani’s new range of satin printed scarves. So Pucci-esque!
Speaking of which, this post is about Ariani Lebaran Fashion Show, as the title says (oh yes, will blog about my birth story soon InsyaAllah; if I can find some quiet me time and not spend it to qada’ my sleep hehe #sleeplessmom #zombiemom. Took me more than a month just to draft this one!).
So anyway, the event was held at The Grand Ballroom, St. Regis Hotel in KL, just a couple of weeks before Ramadhan. I was heavily pregnant at that time! Was praying hard that my water didn’t break that day. Hehe.
Ariani’s lebaran collection this year featured a combination of beautiful colours, materials and prints that are more unique, modern and elegant, with over 100 designs to choose from. Ranging from shawls to instant hijabs, Ariani 2016 Lebaran Collection includes hijabs in pastel and vibrant colours which are available in both plain and printed options, with price starting from just RM69.
In conjunction with Ramadhan this year, Ariani also featured a beautiful collection of telekung, known as Tarawikh Telekung Ariani X Siti Nurhaliza. This telekung collection is made from soft and comfortable materials, and they come in various designs and colours.
The last part of the fashion show is Ariani’s ready-to-wear collection. This year’s theme is Glam Lebaran and there are several special collections including The Maya Series, The Blooming Series as well as The Chantilly Series, which are priced affordably, starting from only RM179!
There’s also The Premium Series RTW collection, which is specially designed for those who loves a bit of luxury and exclusivity. I love the minimal and elegant designs in this collection.
Ariani ready-to-wear collection is also available in plus sizes! I love how everyone just cheered and clapped loudly when the curvy models strutted down the runway. Yes, we curvy women also want to look fabulous! 😛
In case you haven’t done your Raya shopping yet, Ariani RTW boutique is located at Wisma Jakel Shah Alam. Some of the Lebaran collections are also available online at www.arianionline.my. Go check it out!
