2 April 2024

One of the most important occasions in the Muslim calendar, Eid al-Fitr marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan and offers the perfect opportunity to reflect, spend quality time with family, feast on delicious culinary delights and look and feel fabulous while doing so.

With festivities beginning on the evening of Tuesday 9 April – at sunset on the night of the first sighting of the crescent moon – now’s the time to embrace the Eid tradition of treating yourself to a new piece of clothing.

Whether you’re staying at home with loved ones or wanting to make an entrance at that special event, our expert stylists have curated a new-season edit of looks to make your Eid celebrations even more memorable. And if you’d prefer to have a professional help you plan what to wear for Eid, you can book an appointment with one of our friendly and unfailingly fashion-savvy stylists here.
