Often every year, the person who'll prepare my baju raya is my mom. I'm hardly one to anticipate the celebration. So every year, she buys all of our fabrics from her travels and sends them to my long time tailor in Ipoh, Shan Lyn, who has our measurements. The next thing I know, I'd be receiving a Pos Laju parcel with a set of baju kurung made of fabrics I'm not familiar with... and I would be billed accordingly.
This year, I thought of sorting it out myself and I want to do it earlier before it gets too late (especially when it's already Rejab!). I'll be attending more functions in the future, too, which might require more than a printed kurung. So the search for a proper attire for raya, events and such has started.
Over the weekends I visited Nurita Harith with Nona to check out her new raya collection. I'm a fan of the new designs but I'm worried that they're not versatile enough, so I opted for a safer choice from her last collection. We'll see whether the fit and quality will justify the price in a month or two.
By the way, if you like any of the above, it's best to check out her Facebook page, book an appointment and give her a visit by this weekend if you want to get your attire ready for raya.
