BAZIC BY SATISFASHION
Back in 2021 lifestyle influencer Nora Elsherbiny teamed up with local homegrown clothing brand Bazic to create a series of collaborative capsule collections. This season they’ve given us the ‘Ramadan Fit’ featuring a fabulous fringe dress available in a whole rainbow of colours. Likely impossible to eat in but the will make the strongest sartorial statement at any sohour.

DEANA SHAABAN X NASEEJ
This isn't strictly a Ramadan collection but this collaborative capsule collection of lightweight ‘coats’ created by famed designer Deana Shaaban using the lush craftsmanship of fabric-mavens Naseej could have literally been made for Ramadan gatherings.

With a fearless approach to fabric combinations and style amalgamations, these are the type of playful precocious glitter-infused pieces you’ll want to slip on after you’ve had your coffee.
Madkour has become somewhat of a Ramadan staple, always first on the scene with her fun, funky and youthful designs for Ramadan which riff playfully on her year-round boho-chic aesthetic. So you may even want to dig into her summer archive for flowy Ramadan-worthy pieces.
It’s the men’s collection that we’re spotlighting here, mainly because few other homegrown brands have been giving the boys any thought amidst the annual Ramadan capsule collection frenzy. Think traditional garb given a contemporary twist, thanks to bold heritage-inspired embroidery.
Your eyes do not deceive you.
