Amirab Kireina Dress elite living africaAmirab's collection was on show at London Modest Fashion Week. (Photo: Amirab)The Saatchi Gallery was the venue of choice for London Modest Fashion Week (LMFW), the first event of its kind in Britain.

The event welcomed a host of designers including Amirab who unveiled their second collection at the show which takes inspiration from the silhouettes of the swinging 60s and elements of Jackie Kennedy’s wardrobe.

The 15 piece collection incorporates this season’s key trends with exaggerated waists, colour blocks in rich blue hues and super-shine silk.

"With more than 200mn Muslims living in Africa we believe the modest fashion industry within Africa is a very important growing market that Amirab can positively contribute to. Many young women who would like to dress modestly and fashionably may only have limited options to purchase fashionable clothes that offer quality and trends and Amirab aims to expand this market."

"Our new Kireina collection is designed to be versatile. We used neutral toned colours so all of the pieces can be styled for any occasion at any time of day."

The collection has been designed to be layered and versatile, Roda noted the wearer can mix and match key pieces from the collection, which features cigarette trousers, pyjama style shirts and fitted pencil skirts alongside structured jackets and maxi skirts.

Commenting on the success of the event, founder and designer of Amirab Roda Abdi said, "We had very positive feedback from the LMFW event at the weekend. We’ve received many emails from people requesting the collection for pre-order so we’re looking forward to seeing our collection styled by normal women for everyday wear, off the catwalk."

The collection will be available for purchase at https://www.amirab.com/ on 27 February.
