Spring is in the air!

With Aab’s Spring Summer 2010 collection ready to breeze through the season we thought we would let everybody know that by popular demand, Aab now has Black Sea, Oolong  and Cornflowers  back in stock!

Oolong has been very popular and was the Editors favourite in the Spring edition of Sisters Magazine! Editor of Sisters Magazine Naima B. Robert wrote, 

“I fell in love with this abayah the moment I saw it! I love the way it flows, the exaggerated length of the sleeves, the satin trim and the delicate detail on the bodice. Stylish yet simple, this is an abayah you just don’t want to take off. As the fabric is very light, I am looking forward to wearing this in the warmer weather with a maxi dress or skirt underneath”.

And, if you loved Oolong, then you’re in for a special surprise this Spring! Aab is launching a limited edition range of Oolong Pink and Oolong Cream, perfect for the season, with subtle touches that will certainly put a spring in your step!

These items are limited and to avoid dissapointment, add it to your basket as we wont have these again!

Wedding Belles…

912191Summer is the season for weddings, parties, events and so forth…it’s a season for dressing up without worrying about the weather!  The invites are flying out and already you’re wondering what to wear… …so take a look at our exciting occasions range: http://www.aabuk.com/occasions_jilbabs.  

At Aab, we have an exciting range of party wear and other simpler Abayas that can be dressed up too! Decide your style, mood and occasion and look no further…Aab has something for everyone…

The simple cuts mean that movement and flow is not restricted, the fabrics allow the air to breeze in and out keeping you super cool and feeling good throughout the day. There are silks, linens, cottons, beautiful cuts and design for almost every occasion.

Our occasions range is a mixture of colours and eloquent detail allowing you to play around with accessories…the main fabrics used are silks…Here are a few facts to reassure you that purchasing a silk Abaya is definitely a worthwhile investment…

Silk fact number 1… Besides its luxurious softness and lustrous beauty, there are various other benefits of silk that other fabrics, whether natural or man-made, simply cannot match. These advantages of silk have rightly earned silk its reputation as the queen of fabrics.  Aab says If ‘Why Silk?’ is still a question in your mind, the following benefits of silk should remove any doubts. It is not just a question of comparison with other fabrics, some of these benefits and advantages place silk in a league of its own.”

912191

 

 Silk Fact number 2… Because of its natural protein structure, silk is the most hypoallergenic of all fabrics. Aab says Natural fibers means  a natural route to remedy problems without harming our habitat”

 

 Silk fact number 3… An all-climate fabric, silk is warm and cozy in winter and comfortably cool when temperatures rise. Its natural temperature-regulating properties give silk this paradoxical ability to cool and warm simultaneously. Silk garments thus outperform other fabrics in both summer and winter. Silk worn as a second layer warms without being bulky – Aab says Aab loves this feature of silk…garments that look bulky lose elegance! Silks 912191-1431-365x426allow the Abayas to flow naturally and add beauty to attire without even trying!”

 

Silk fact number 4…Silk is highly absorbent: it can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling damp. Silk will absorb perspiration while letting your skin breathe  Aab says Something we are sure a lot of ladies will be happy to hear and rush to wear…it’s perfect for those long summer days!!”

 

 Silk fact number 5… In spite of its delicate appearance, silk is relatively robust. Its smooth surface resists soil and odors well. Silk is wrinkle and tear resistant, and dries quickly.. While silk abrasion resistance is moderate, it is the strongest natural fiber and, surprisingly, it easily competes with steel yarn in tensile strength…Aab say… Which is why these fine fabrics are ideal for our occasions range” 

Silk fact number 6…Cleaning and washing silk is surprisingly easy if certain precautions are observed.  All garments are appropriately labeled to include silk washing instructions. We recommend hand washing silk, unless the garment carries an explicitly Dry Clean Only instruction –

 Aab says “Optimal silk care will ensure longer and lustrous life of the garment. We, therefore, recommend hand washing silk even for items that are labeled for machine washing.”

 Now that you have read all the virtues of silk…take a look at our party favourites!

 Aab’s favourites for the wedding season is ‘Pesian Petals’ and ‘Isfahan’…

The Aab blog is now live!

Welcome to the Aab blog…

Welcome to the official Aab blog! Aab…who or what are Aab? Aab was born out of a demand for making beautifully crafted garments for ladies who love ‘Simple Understated Style’.

Our garments are produced with the utmost care and attention to detail, the careful selection of fabric, the unique design process and finally, the manner in which we send our garments to our valued clients.

Always searching for something unique is our ethos… Making beautiful dresses from natural fibres means caring for our bodies which, in turn, means we care about the environment we live in and our overall existence.  It’s about being in touch with your inner self… we have a saying ‘Nature Nurtures Aab’ and this is how it all started.

From creating one off designs, interest began to flow and we built up a private clientele, and have now moved on to share our passion for dressing women across the world.  From the UK, to the USA, even as far as Australia and now the Middle East, Aab is being recognised as a brand Muslim women can associate with, be proud of… At Aab we believe every woman wears things differently… Find yourself and your individual style with Aab.

This blog is intended for us to be able to interact with our valued clients, to hear about you, your thoughts, feedback, ideas you wish to share…

Every fortnight we will post our own mini newsletter/blog giving you an insight to Aab… and generally topics which affect women in everyday life.

The issues we will discuss over the next few months will be:

  • Aab Fabrics: what makes them so unique, how to care for your garments.  The beauty behind Linen, Silk, Cotton and Wool…
  • Aab Inspiration: what inspires us…Women, their multiple roles in today’s society
