Raya fashion this year a matter of sensible restraint, says Malaysian designers

Labels like Umma are offering designs with minimal touches of embellishments, choosing instead to play with texture and prints for Raya designs.

Hari Raya and fashion go hand-in-hand. Yet, this year may see everyone scaling back when it comes to dressing up as the recent movement control order (MCO) has put a dampener on preparations for the festive celebration.

With the MCO in place, it means there is no going out and shopping for new clothes, no browsing at your regular bazaar or even getting an appointment with your favourite tailor or designer to have your Raya clothing specially made for you and your family.
