Fashion label review- Pardah Collections

Assalaamu alaikum all,

Recently I have been in contact with a few new Islamic companies, fashion labels, online stores etc, today's review is on a new fashion label called 'Pardah collections'. The owner of pardah collections has sent me a few products to review so here goes...!

Pardah collections is a brand new fashion label based in Glasgow, UK. It is owned by sister Shama. They sell a full range of stunning brooches, bracelets, rings, headbands, swarovski crystal products(abaya and headbands) bridal abaya, everyday abayas, and the girls night out abaya! They are currently the only stockist for the Lawung designer range in Scotland.

A bespoke tailoring service is also available, the item you like can be altered to suit you. If you want something that is not available on the website you can get in contact with pardah collections and they will be more than willing to try and get it for you.

Pardah collections has a range of beautiful wedding abayas. The abaya's are middle eastern styles with an infusion of western trends. The ideal outfit for a bride or bridesmaids. Elegantly modest.
 There are various styles of superb quality middle eastern abayas straight off the catwalk. Pardah collections doesn't follow a trend it sets the trends.
















One thing I absolutely love about pardah collections is their gorgeous range of brooches, rings and bracelets!












I was sent the third brooch in this picture above and it is even more beautiful in real life! The quality is top notch, it's mega cute and can be worn with your hijab to add a little bit of pretty bling to an everyday outfit.

Here are ideas of how to wear the brooch with a hijab...










I also received a bracelet in its own special gift box, I love those little deatails such as gift boxes, always makes it that much more special....here are a few images of the bracelets being sold by pardah collections, each one has its own gift box or organza pouch.









My fav bracelet has got to be the one at the end, for some reason it reminds me of that kenneth jay swarovski ring featured in the 'classic black' blog post. Would definitely go really well with that ring.

here are a few more images of the products pardah collection sells






Pardah collections delivers worldwide, parcels are shipped out on same day as order if placed before 4pm UK time.


Another amazing thing about this company is its charitable work here's what the owner Shama had to tell me about their charity work....

"We have teamed up with a local charity called the well foundation http://www.wellfoundation.org.uk/

This charity does fantastic work mA!The Well Foundation primarily aims to raise money to build wells, install hand pumps and establish health and sanitation programme's to provide accessible clean water to the stricken regions of the world.

The Well Foundation will seek to undertake a number of key projects which we hope will compliment people’s lives.

If you want to get involved or wish to place a charity fund-raising tin at your premise then please go to the "Get Involved" page on the website for further details or e-mail them at info@wellfoundation.

aH we are in process of linking our site with this charity to offer our customers the chance to donate!
iA by doing this we will raise lots of much needed money for those in need of clean water."

The customer service with this company was mostly very good, bearing in mind they haven't finished setting everything up the best way to get in touch with them is through facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Pardah-Collections/136631753050060

The website is yet to be completed, however you can buy items from their lawung range and some of their jewellery, but again the best way to view their products and contact them is through the facebook page. http://www.pardah.co.uk/  

All in all my fav section of the fashion label is their jewellery, the abayas are very nice but I'm very much looking forward to the website being up and running fully (hopefully 13th Feb iA).  So go and have a look at some of the jewellery and the lawung section for now, but make sure to check the site again when its up and running.

  5. salam sister, i know this blog was from the beginning of the year but i was just wondering if you will be doing any competitions i=with this company again? Their products are so gorgeous!the sister that ownes the company was kind enough to arrange for me to come out and do a 'viewing' and i have to say i spent a fortune! lol the abayas she has on her facebook page do not so the actual product justice. i am constantly in contact with her for advice on hijabs and the latest accessories for hijabs and have to say aH she has been very helpful with advice and opinions. she has given me alot of her time as im sure she would with all her clients. i definately cant wait until she opens up a boutique! iA it will be soon because im sure it will be so elegant and such a pleasant shopping experiance, moreso due to the sisters individual approach and care towards each customer.
