Muslims make up about 24 % of the world’s population coming from different countries, different cultures and races. Despite their similarities in most religious beliefs and practices, most muslims retain a lot of their own culture while practicing Islam. An Indonesian or Malaysia can look very different from that of a Muslim in Pakistan or in the African states.
Eid ul fitri is a Muslim holiday which falls on the first of Syawal / Shawwal, and its is largely a day of celebration after a month of fasting and abstinence in Ramadan.
Part of the festivities would be to dress up in your best clothes ...that and feasting of course 😛 .

Pink and green goes really well together don't you think? We loved how she pulled it off with a simple neutral hijab.

Ladies in SouthEast Asia typically don the 'Baju Kurung' or 'Baju Kebaya' for festivities and BashHarry stunned us in a mini kurung from the LS by Jovian collection. Paired with a Sweet Chilli Duck Scarf and red lips, this look is smoking hot ! ( Chilli .... hot... geddit..geddit? )
How gorgeous is her african inspired outfit?? The prints, the bell-sleeves and the matching headwrap to boot. And to top it off make up perfection with a touch of bright blue eyeshow. We're in .
The baju Kebaya is another style of dress popular with Muslim women in South East Asia, with subtle variations seen among women from Malaysia and Indonesia. This sheer embroidered kebaya worn with a printed 'kain' or skirt is definitely a win in our books!
