Arabesque is a “designer” abaya and sheila line based in the United Arab Emirates.

I’ve always loved this store, the abayas are luxurious and way over the top. Check out the fur lined abaya, what a statement for winter!

These are great if you have a really fancy event to go to. Instead of trying to hijabify a strapless dress, put a designer abaya and sheila on and you’ll look a million times better than getting all bundled up in a gaudy gown.
