That is how Amal Azhari describes her collections of designer abaya, sheer silk robes that bridge the perceived gap between conservative and contemporary fashion.Azhari's concept blends the traditional cut, a large square of fabric often with a trim-lined V-neck, and trendy motifs and colors.Referencing that movement, Azhari titled the new collection "wind".Contemporary abaya – often referred to as caftan in fashion jargon – are inherently summer frocks. Ramadan has fallen in the summer over the past five years, making her abaya popular for fancy iftars, she said.It was her love of the beach, she explained, that led her to design her own abaya.
