UK: The 3rd Urban Muslim Woman Show

acacia-designerThe UK once again prepares itself for the prestigiously exclusive event that is the Urban Muslim Woman Show; giving Muslim women a chance to be inspired, empowered and to network at the London Novotel West on Saturday 15 June 4.30pm – 10.30pm.

This is the third such event organised by Saverah in partnership with Muslim Charity which has been buoyed by past successes and this year promises to be bigger than ever! Influential speakers such as broadcaster and journalist Lauren Booth (half-sister of Cherie Blair), author of Love in a Headscarf, Shelina Zahra Janmohamed and Rimla Akhtar, chair of Muslim Women Sports Foundation will also be present to share their thoughts and experiences on the issues faced by many Muslim women in matters of culture, faith and professional lives.

Another highlight of the UMW show will be the latest fashion shows from established designers such as Sri Munawwarah, Jeny Tjahyawati as well as new and emerging talent who are showcasing their fashion collections for the very first time before their official launches.

Designers are keen to challenge conventional thinking on Muslim women’s fashion and so their bold, creative and flattering designs are not only innovative and refreshing but also demonstrate how fashion and modesty can be beautifully combined to create a chic, contemporary look.

The event acts as a platform for many entrepreneurs keen to show off their creative skills and original products so guests have a chance to support local businesses and buy the designer clothing featured on the catwalk.

Guests will also be treated to a sumptuous 3 course meal, entertainment by singer/songwriter Sarah Yaseen and will be free to browse through the collection of many exhibitors.

The event is open to Muslim and non-Muslim women from all walks of life as we extend a warm welcome to professional business women as well as students and domestic wives. Over 500 guests are expected to be in attendance as the show is fast gaining support and has become one of the highlights of the Muslim calendar.

The Urban Muslim Woman Show is a bringing together of a whole community which aims to inspire and motivate woman, giving them a voice and supporting their ambitions in a secure environment.

It paves the way for women to be successful and to change their own communities, leaving behind a lasting legacy for other young women in the communities.
The UMW show is organised by Saverah Events who aim to connect people in order to achieve goals and encourage change. They are partnered with the Muslim Charity which works to eliminate poverty and build communities in the developing world.

The show will take place on Saturday June 15th at the London Novotel West from 4.30pm to 10.30pm and tickets must be booked in advance.
