Not content with launching the first global online destination for modest fashion on International Women’s Day last year, or unleashing its very own label, aptly named Layeur, this week the overachievers at The Modist have joined forces with a curated selection of the platform’s most covetable international and Middle Eastern designers to create unique, exclusive designs, especially for the Holy Month.
"The Ramadan collection, including the piece available at The Modist, reflects the talent that is among us in the region, and in the communities that are helping to sustain their craft. I am so grateful for the efforts of the Irthi Contemporary Crafts Council for welcoming me into their community and helping me to engage with the artisans in this way." Ayah Tabari - All Things Mochi
"We are so excited and grateful to be involved in this project with The Modist for Ramadan. The special fabrics seen in our kaftans link directly to our Pre-Spring and Spring/Summer 2018 collections, so it has been a great opportunity to extend our offering and develop something exclusive for The Holy Month." Peter Pilotto
"Our exclusive collection for The Modist was crafted with fabrics made in Italy that are usually used for haute couture, which bring out the beauty of old-school and innovative techniques that our clients appreciate – such as jacquard fil coupé made in endless variations of Lurex. The kaftans – a Taller Marmo signature piece – are presented in various motifs such as folding fans, stripe and roses made in pastel hues and vivid colours, from baby pink and blue to deep red and gold." Taller Marmo
"Working on the exclusive Ramadan collection for The Modist for the second consecutive year has been incredible, especially seeing women regionally and internationally shopping the collection. The Dima Ayad signature silhouettes are reimagined in a new variety of colours, as well as new silhouettes using summer-weight fabrics that can be worn season after season." Dima Ayad
