Maison Q

Founded in 2015 by Suhana Ab, Maison Q is a dedicated kid’s fashion brand based in Singapore, with occasional collections for adults. For the second time since its inception, the label is introducing matching sets for its Eid 2021 collection—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. The only caveat is that pieces from the collection are available in extremely limited quantities, so get them while you still can.

Simply Rays is a homegrown Muslim-owned fashion label. The label offers baju raya (Hari Raya clothes) for everyone from toddlers to adults, making shopping easier for families who want to wear matching outfits. They’ve put a contemporary twist on traditional Malay ethnic-wear, featuring a range of textures, colourful print and styles, giving everyone the option to choose what suits them best.

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. Though 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 that you can pair with your existing wardrobe for a whole new look.
