What does modest fashion mean to you?:
Modest fashion is clothing that covers most of the body, revealing little skin. It tends to be loose fitting, flowy or layering of clothes and comfortable.
It doesn't specifically need to be attached to religion, it could also be personal preference.
Will you be celebrating Eid? if so tell us a little bit about how you’ll be celebrating!:
Yes I will. I usually will prepare ahead for Eid by making a variety of homemade cookies during Ramadan. The day before Eid I would usually cook traditional Malaysian dishes with the Takbir playing in the background and will be singing to my childhood Eid songs as I grew up in Malaysia. I'd invite family and friends over for Eid the next day. I make sure my whole family get dressed up and we tend to have a theme every year, so our outfit colours will all match. We will spend the rest of the day visiting family and friends. I tend to get the kids excited for Eid by buying them presents and we will play with sparklers in the garden in the evening.
