Get A Headstart On Your Hari Raya Shopping | Clozette

In the spirit of Ramadan which just started this week, Muslims all over the region — and the world — are currently in the midst of a month-long fasting, contemplating, and giving back to the community. It all ends with Hari Raya, which literally means 'celebration day' that signifies breaking of the fast and starting a whole new month in the Islamic calendar. 

And while it's still somewhat a long way to go, we know that going all out for the celebration is truly the way to close such an important festivity. That's why we're here to serve dibs on the latest modest fashion collections to make your Hari Raya festive shopping easy. 

Katt Ibrahim 2018 Capsule Raya collection

Portraying a vibrant and upbeat vibe that truly captures the 'Katt Ibrahim girl', this new collection features bold and earthy pieces that can be worn separately or together. Ultra-feminine silhouettes that still stays true to modest style is the very heart of each design, making it a great choice when shopping for your Hari Raya outfits. You can catch the collection at Celebfest in Suntec Singapore from the 18th till 20th May 2018.

ZALORA Zalia and Lubna Raya 2018 collection

If you love online shopping, you'll be delighted to know that ZALORA's own modest labels Zalia and Lubna, are launching their respective Raya collections in line with this year's themes — Bright Ethereal & Exotic Shine and Historical Romance & Psychotropics. Both will have extensive pieces for both men and women that feature exquisite designs complete with stunning silhouettes, amazing beadwork, and intricate shapes and prints. 

Pomelo Rhythm Of Nature collection

This newly launched collection from Pomelo mixes tradition and trends, providing comfortable, chic pieces that embrace modern fashion. The free-spirited shapes and prints of the collection are perfect if you prefer garbs that are not too over-the-top but are still perfect for celebrating the festivities. 

Next, here are our thoughts on what to do while our Muslim friends and colleagues are fasting this Ramadan.



Even with the intense summer heat, there are still instances when we need that extra layer like when we're stepping into an airconditioned shopping mall or during the night when the breeze becomes a little too cold for our liking. Keep reading to see the different outerwears that are suitable for this season, as worn by the #Clozette Community.

Happy hump day! We're having a good week so far, and we hope you are, too. We're so excited for what the rest of the week brings — and that includes what will happen in the worlds of fashion and beauty, of course. But before we look ahead, here's what's poppin' right now.


Using an egg-shaped sponge to blend your base makeup has been one of the biggest makeup-world-game-changers in recent years. But we have to admit that we'd rather use it than clean it. Taking all the gunk off can be quite the feat, but the makers of Beautyblender has got your back. They've launched Instaclean, which, as the name of the product suggests, allows you to instantly clean your makeup sponge. Think of it as the dry shampoo of makeup sponges.

You x Max Factor

Max Factor is calling for a new era in beauty wherein depth is the focus. The brand, with their global initiative You x Max Factor, wants to put the spotlight on women's experiences and celebrate their beauty from all angles.  Find out more about it by watching the video above.

Proenza Schouler makeup

Proenza Schouler is the latest designer brand to dabble in cosmetics. The fashion house is partnering up with Lancome for an exclusive collection. No word yet on what products the collaboration would consist of, but we're keeping our eyes peeled. 

The biggest Uniqlo store in the PH

Get ready to shop till you drop because Uniqlo is opening their biggest store yet in Southeast Asia in the Philippines. Enjoy 4,100 square metres of selections at Glorietta 5 in Makati.
