Mullani is a new brand by designer sisters Deega and Faye. After Faye attended the London College of Fashion both sisters came with the idea to design clothing inspired by Middle Eastern and Western dress styles. Another example of what I would like to call Hybrid fashion. The sisters came up with their idea 10 years ago but faced many challenges before they could finally launch their own fashion label. Today their dresses are bought by women all over the world and success seems to be just around the corner. On the 1st of June Mullani will have its first fashion show in Dallas, America during ‘Fashion for Compassion’. This event aims to create dialogue through fashion and wants to break stereotypes by showcasing designs from all over the world.
Mullani’s first collection named ‘Unspoken’ consists of fashionable and trans-seasonal maxi dresses. The aim of Mullani is to design dresses that are simple and modest yet elegant and fashionable. The brand has been well received by the Muslim community who often struggle to find modest maxi dresses that are fashionable as well. The simple designs make it easy for you to accessorize it and wear it both day and night. With a pair of bright colored statement heels and chunky jewellery you can dress it up for a night out and dress it down when you need to spend the day at the office.
The Mullani philosophy is to create dresses that are light and comfortable. This mission reminds me of several dresses that I’ve owned that were either super hard to move around in, let alone dance or ones with a 99% risk of wardrobe malfunction. It is good to know designers still think about comfort! Mullani is planning to launch a new collection in September and I personally look forward to see more of this brand.
Check out the different styles in the gallery. My personal favorites are the Eris and Amira dresses from the ‘Unspoken’ collection. Let us know which ones you like best @FashionOriental or leave a comment below!
