The Essence of the Abaya
An elegant yet simplistic piece of clothing, the abaya defines history, culture, and tradition.
The abaya, predominantly paraded in the GCC, is also a religious symbol, which has been modernized into a stylish and modest piece.
Nowadays, abayas are not just for religion, but they function as fashion statements that develop their social independence. By increased popularity of wearing the most glamorous and fabulous work of art, which consists of intricate design details and decent fabric materials, the abaya has become a success story in its niche market.
From the standard black fabric, the abaya has definitely come a long way. Abayas can now be found in a variety of colors, from somber grays to pastel pink hues, the color variations are endless. The fabrics have been modernized as well, alongside the embellishments. From Swarovski crystals, to hand drawn paintings, the choices when picking a new abaya are endless.
