Everything you need to know about the Islamic holiday and what to wear to ring in the festivities with your family
An important date in the Muslim calendar and expected to take place in the early days of September (depending on the moon), Eid Al-Adha is an Islamic festival celebrated worldwide. Otherwise known as the ‘Feast of Sacrifice’, the celebration will see many of the UAE’s residents enjoy a three-day holiday to mark the holy occasion.
A special time of both family and religious devotion, Eid Al-Adha brings with it a host of celebratory events where loved ones feast and share gifts with one another.
Here we reveal the ultimate Eid gifts to buy from the Dubai shopping malls and the stylish shopping picks to celebrate the occasion in fashionable form.
Moresque Alandalus Candle available at Paris Gallery, visit City Centre Mirdif, City Centre Bahrain and City Centre Fujairah
With rich notes of saffron, ginger and oud, this decadent candle is sure to be a well-received gift across the board.
Satin gown by Rochas available at Boutique 1, visit Mall of the Emirates
This dress is made for feasting, thanks to the ever so clever drop-waist silhouette. We love the shimmering sequinned bodice and satin finish for glamorous after-hours occasions during Eid.
Embroidered skirt available at H&M
A vibrant cherry red maxi skirt that ticks all the right boxes – modest, bright and bang on trend with the floral embroidered overlay. For maximum impact, team with an equally bright blouse and statement soles.
