Baraka is a label designed and made in Australia by Kath Fry. Her label was featured in the Australian edition of Vogue magazine last month and have had a lot of interest from customers and retailers in Middle East due to the story. The feature highlights how Baraka filled the cultural gap in the market for clothes that are modest yet beautifully made. I find it quite interesting for an international fashion magazine to address this vital issue in our region. I agree, it is challenging to find stylish clothes suitable for our Muhaja-babes (fashionistas who wear the head scarf). Some of my friends were over the moon last season when they witnessed the return of the maxi skirts/dress and wide-leg pants.
