Sheikha Hub aims to be a one-stop-service hub that empowers modest fashion entrepreneurs. By Afia R Fitriati.
As it is in many other countries, the modest fashion industry is booming in Malaysia as more and more designers and entrepreneurs get into the business every year. To support this growth, a business hub has officially been launched in the country’s capital, Kuala Lumpur. Sheikha Hub claims to be the first of its kind in the Southeast Asian nation.
‘With this hub, we strive to develop quality services and tools that will empower and inspire Malaysian Islamic-fashion entrepreneurs, business owners and designers,’ said Datin Norzihan Ahmad, founder of Sheikha Hub, in a press release.
She added, ‘There is an extraordinary pool of very creative and innovative talent here in the Islamic fashion industry. We have seen a positive growth in the number of online entrepreneurs selling Muslimah-fashion related items and services and at Sheikha Hub, we aim to provide as much support as we can to these entrepreneurs.’
The supports available include informative business initiatives such as seminars, forums and business tips from established business owners, on-ground and online promotional platforms as well as access to the hub’s international panel of mentors. Some of the renowned names in the panel are Fatma Ghanem of Qatar-based brand FufiStylist Abaya; Zeina of Palestyle in the UAE; Farrah Adeeba of Malaysia-based Najjah; and Zetty Ismail of Sepatu in London.
Sheikha Hub also announced the winners of its annual Muslimah modelling competition at its launch event, which took place on June 29th at the Publika Shopping Centre.
