How Hanan Ibrahim is celebrating Eid al-Fitr

From the fashion to the gifts she’ll be giving, look to the model and activist for a lesson in making your celebrations extra special.

Hanan Ibrahim and friends, Rosie and Bella.

Beginning at the first sight of the crescent moon, Ramadan serves as a time when Muslims around the world reflect, fast, and pray; coming together 30 days later for Eid al-Fitr. Meaning the ‘breaking of the fast,’ Eid al-Fitr is a time for community, gathering with friends and gratitude, as Muslims are called to recognise all that they have and share with those who may be less fortunate with festivities lasting up to two or three days. As one of Australia’s rising fashion stars, Melbourne-based Hanan Ibrahim knows a thing or two about stylish celebrations. Joined by her friends Rosie and Bella, discover how she plans to mark the occasion.

The dress code

A spectacular celebration calls for fashion to match. A time to dress your absolute best, trust in international designer names like Solace London and Rotate to bring the right amount of ‘extra’ with their sweeping silhouettes and sequins that dazzle. For those drawn to colour, let Australian labels like Aje and Bec + Bridge be your answer with a selection of separates that spark joy. Brought to life in vibrant patterns and hues, balloon sleeves and maxi skirts strike the perfect balance between modest and modern. Pair your look back with the accessories of the moment (think Aquazurra sandals and Alighieri jewels) and you’ve got yourself a fashion formula that’s set to lay the foundation for an unforgettable Eid al-Fitr.

Set the scene for celebration

When the moment calls for a feast like no other, look to highly coveted names in homewares to do the heavy lifting. Start with a lineup of design-led labels by the likes of In The Roundhouse; their napkins and placemats promise to add a touch of elegance to every place setting. From there, level things out with classics from Cristina Re. Embellished by hand with lustrous 24ct gold, her 3-Tier cake stand puts decadent desserts front and centre. Once the table is set, all that’s left to do is add a selection of sparkling glassware and you’re ready to let the celebrations begin.

The beauty moment

In a season of celebration beauty favourites that are big on luminosity will forever shine bright. Take your cue from Hanan and begin with a flawless base. Burberry’s signature Beyond Radiance primer lays the ultimate foundation (with 24-hour hydration), paving the way for perfect skin. A winner of the 2021 David Jones Beauty Awards, Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation is a makeup artist must-have for a reason. Available in a range of 40 shades, its weightless, lit-from-within formula was designed to correct and unify the complexion. Whether you favour a bold or softer shade of lip, look to beauty icons that go the distance. From smudge-free to long-wearing formulas, Gucci and M·A·C serve up ample options when it comes to days of feasting.
