Founded in 2015 by Suhana Ab, Maison Q is a dedicated kid’s fashion brand based in Singapore, with occasional collections for adults. Each year, the label introduces matching family sets for Eid that’s perfect for growing families. The amazing team behind the brand has dreamed up a collection comprising tulle, textured satin and cotton in extremely wearable colours and flattering silhouettes.

Naelofar

Naelofar, helmed by popular Malaysian actress and TV presenter Neelofa, isn’t exactly a homegrown label. That said, we think that supporting our neighbours in these trying times is exactly the kind of retail therapy we all should be indulging in. While the entrepreneur has founded many brands, her hijab label Naelofar is by far the most sought-after. Get into the festive spirit with her Naelofar Raya collection comprising contemporary cool hijabs sporting gorgeous, colourful prints and motifs that you can pair with your existing wardrobe for a whole new look.
