Sometimes I struggle in finding out the right word or adjective to describe a situation, a feeling, an object, a circumnstance. Once, I read that writers are used to dive into a long hours reading of ancient books, mostly belonging to 20th century, in order to come up with the right words to be written down on their works. The reason in this ” back to the roots” process can be find in the purity and vasty of synonims used at that age for feelings and situations, specifications that we might have lost over the years. Not a case a few days ago I was wondering how to describe something brightnening, lighting up, brilliant.
Well, I found my right word at the occasion of an international event in Canada and the word is Glow.
On August 26th, the fourth edition of the International Modest Fashion & Design Festival literally glowed up the Daniel Spectrum space in Toronto.
Sponsored by Tuesday in Love , a Canadian company specializing in it’s unique Halal certified cosmetics, IMFDF chose as theme for this edition the term Glow, with the aim to highlight women’s empowerment in the Modest fashion industry during the last year, and it took the phrase “glow up”, usually used by the millenials in order to describe an incredible transformation or progress.
Let’s reveal the designers who took the catwalk during the event: BOUTIQUE AL SONDOS, BENI BOO, EMAN IDILL, HK STAR PRODUCTION, JUWYRIYA, LA MODESTY, LEXYNELLE REVEUR, LAKI SHOP, MODERNISA, SUBEENA Z, THE MODEST AESTHETIC, VEILED COLLECTION.
Eman Idill brought to the scene a collection worn by her own models: she didn’t rely on a proper model agency..she just gathered together a great team of ambassadors by herself and the outcome could only be glorious, as her collection did. She opted for colors coming from the earth , from the brown to a bronze, passing through the candide cream and the deep black.
Do you remember the Hijabi t shirt we saw at Torino Modest Fashion week? Well, Juwyriya designer cannot miss this event and the casual and cosy t shirt with Hijabi written on, combined with a long skirt or palazzo trousers, remains one of the “must have” of this season.
Laki Studio Canada focused on a glowing golden, as the arabic calligraphy written on the long dresses, as appendix to the total block abaya and as the peculiar light for its bags collection.
THe Modest Aesthetic collection was a blooming of orange shades, kept into oriental inspired dresses, that reminds of kimons during an ancient time in Japan, when flowers bloom around the town and not a case that the designs on the long dresses and the suits recall of this spring moment.
Not only a fashion show, IMFDF resulted into a great meeting among, influencers, bloggers, media , people interested in the modest style and the vendors at the Bazaar shared their experiences and taste for Modesty. It did not miss halal food, crepes and local delicatessen too to end properly, an after party Dj set to celebrate those beauties.
