I went to the fashion show and it was AMAZING!! Definitely had the right atmosphere for an event for young women. It was very exciting and professionally done. Camera flashes just couldn't stop going off, the clothes were that nice.

I attended and fell in love with the shirts from http://www.JustLongShirts.com
They were stylish, modern & modest! Congrats go out to the organizers who put on a wonderful show!

This sounds like this was quite an interesting Islamic fashion show. Does anyone know when there will be another scheduled show?

Good fashhion, I think Islamic Fashion especially in Malaysia are quiet elegant

I believe that Aab are also exhibiting their new range at this show. They have a Sprint / Summer range at the moment which I am looking for ward to seeing - http://www.aabuk.com
