The Dubai–based fashion boutique Salma Khan Fashion House, owned by the UAE-based designer of Pakistani origin Salma Khan, has joined in the festivities by unveiling its Arabian fashion-inspired Spirit of the Desert collection. Replete with modern cuts and silhouettes, the vibrantly printed and textured 40-piece line includes jalabiyas, kaftans, blouses, Aladdin trousers and skirts.
Jeddah fashion label Zad for Zakia Attar Designs, from the Saudi fashion designer Zakia Attar, has also released collections dedicated to the auspicious month and upcoming Eid al-Fitr festival.

Based in summer-friendly shades of ivory, warm brown, neon, orange, green and sea blue, the line is adorned with animal motifs and tribal prints.
