Last March 2012, Me and girl friends had "Spiritual Journey" to Makkah, Madinnah and Jeddah. It calls "Umro".
Well, even it's about Spiritual Journey as a woman we never left Fashion behind. But, still we choose simple and comfy material.
Makkah and Madinnah now more Modern and very artistic for building architecture Nice exterior and Interior. The lights is full of art concept. I'ts clean and very convinient to walks aroud.
But, for Fashion itself Black and White are dominan Color there. Mostly woman wore an "Abaya".
Abaya essentially a robe-like dress. Traditional abaya is black and may be either a large square of fabric draped from Shoulder (as caftan ; check my other blog entry about it).
Abaya covers the whole body except the face, feet and hands. Married woman worn with niqab (a face veil ; cover all but not eyes). Some woman choose wear a long black gloves, so their hands are covered as well.
But, Now Abaya looks more variety and stylish. Its design with lace, emroidery, swarovski and some other expensive material.
Abaya price is quite expensive there, but some made in China.. no wonder right? :)
For simple abaya cost about $40 and up
