At the end of the holy month of Ramadan, attention turns to the holiday of Eid al-Fitr. The three-day event is celebrated with tasty food and shopping, especially new clothes for the Eid al-Fitr celebration.
During this time of year, several fashion companies try to appeal to those who dress more modestly for their faith. These new trends are catching people’s attention, especially Ferhan Brhan, Miami boutique owner of Brhan’s Closet.
“To be honest, it was never released,” Brhan said. “I mean until the last two years.”
She said the charity of gifts has always been part of the Ramadan season, with gifts traditionally given during Eid al-Fitr.
“It’s something you celebrate with your family, your friends, your loved ones,” she said. “And you want to give anything, but the best gift is something they can benefit from.”
That’s where her clothing lines come in. She was born and raised in Miami and struggled to find clothes that matched her faith. Thus, she was inspired to start her own collection.
“With my business, I make sure it’s something that I personally would wear,” Brhan said. “As for the fabric, I try to make sure it’s also breathable.”
In the meantime, Brhan is looking to expand his store. She plans to offer more options, flowing fabrics and bright colors to allow women to express their personality.
The holy month of Ramadan is scheduled to end on Sunday, May 1. After Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr will mark the end of the month-long fast.
