What inspired our Eid/Raya 2016 Collection?

Let us rewind back to a few months before my wedding day, my mother wanted me to design a kaftan like dress for my Nikah ( solemnization ). It took us a few months to decide of a design, and finally she decided on the final look. I drafted out some sketches and decided to make Harmalah Kaftan version 1.0.

I was still not satisfied with the design as it didn't come with sleeve lining and the sequins were not as visible. So when designing for Meem's Eid 2016 Collection, I had made it my goal to have a better version of the Harmalah Kaftan version 1.0 !
When me and Mr H was on a hunt for the perfect sequin a few weeks ago, we found this beautifully designed sequin. We quickly bought the whole roll of fabric and brought it back to our factory for samples !
It was the last and only roll of the beautiful sequin, so we HAD to buy it! :D
The sequins looking really pretty and extravagent on our Harmala Kaftan. When I saw how it looked on our sample for the first time, I shrieked with so much joy inside! 
Through the years, Meem Clothings have always tried to cater to mummies out there, there has been a demand of breast feeding friendly apparels. As our brand grew, our customers have also transitioned from wives to mothers. MasyaAllah :) As per requested, not only does the Harmalah Kaftan 2.0 have a front zipper, we have also designed a front fabric covering to cover the chest just in case you need some coverage! Let me know what you ladies think ;)
 The nicely pleated front covering actually gives the Harmala Kaftan some volume, who says designing with function in mind first won't make your designes look good? :P
