Regina Fabs – Changing Desi Outfits One Tulle Skirt at a Time
In this series called Business In The Spotlight, we highlight Muslim owned or Muslim catering businesses who you may or may not know about and help you to understand the human story behind the brand.
Wajiha and I have known each other since I randomly found her on Instagram under the name “Just Jiha”.
I’ve always admired her style and the fact that she is half Pakistani and half Filipino but still very traditional as well as modern.
She’s always rocked her Desi clothes and been proud of both cultures, marrying them up beautifully.
I love her hair tutorials on YouTube and she describes herself as a “Hair Blogger” (who even knew that was a term!).
It’s kind of genius if you think about it, she only needs the hair on her head and some imagination to create wearable styles that she generously shares with us all.
When I spotted her wearing a beautiful tulle skirt in her latest posts, I asked her where they were from and then she revealed that she had started a Tulle Skirt company called Regina Fabs with her sisters!
THE STORY BEHIND REGINA FABS
In the Real World, you either work for someone or become an entrepreneur.
The latter was more appealing to us.
Our business is all about clothing but mainly full-length skirts.
We want to help all kind of women to express their own style and be beautiful and stunning at the same time.
BUMPS IN THE ROAD
Every small business has obstacles on the road to success, so it’s important to acknowledge and share them.
WHAT MAKES REGINA FABS UNIQUE?
The company is based in Manchester in the UK, so it came to me pretty fast after ordering.
I bought the skirt because of how beautifully Wajiha and her customers styled it with traditional Desi clothes on their Instagram page, and to be honest, I’ve always wanted to look like a princess!
The skirts are really well wrapped and didn’t suffer any damage at the hands of the post which is great!
Each skirt comes with a sash and an elasticated waist.
The waist size goes up to 18 ½ inches or 47 cm and the length of the skirt is 40 inches or 100 cm.
I’ll be honest, I had a bit of tantrum in getting these photos shot because we have such limited light in the winter and I have to wait till my husband is available to take outfit shots, but eventually, we got them Alhamdulillah (Good thing as it snowed all day the next day!)
I styled the skirt 2 ways, one with a Desi outfit and one with a shirt.
And then with a shirt for a more modern look:
HOW MUCH ARE THEY?
Each skirt is £35.99 and P&P is extra.
They currently have a 40% off offer when you sign up to their e-mail list which makes the price £21.60 per skirt, and with 6 colours to choose from, you really are spoilt for choice!
It’s probably one of the only things I could share with my sister because we’re two different sizes.
SHOULD YOU BUY?
It’s an innovative concept and something so different, if Tulle skirts are your jam, then this is right up your street!
My only concern is when you are plus sized like me, it can be a bit tight to wear for long periods of time and if you’re not careful you can trip over the amount of fabric, but if beauty is pain, lead me to the Regina Fabs skirt!
