LONDON – The second annual Saverah Women Expo in partnership with Human Appeal is a unique event designed to celebrate, support, educate and empower modern Muslim women, from homemakers to high-powered businesswomen and everyone in between. Organised by Saverah Events, this year’s Saverah Women Expo takes place Sunday, May 29 at the InterContinental London – The O2; more than 5,000 visitors are expected to attend.

The biggest event of its kind in the U.K. and Europe, the expo provides a platform to Muslim women to support and showcase their amazing skills and talents. It brings together a variety of resources in one place, from women-owned businesses and fashion to beauty, lifestyle and health.

Called the ‘Ultimate Day Out’ for women, the Saverah Women Expo offers an interacting platform for modest fashion designers to unveil their new and popular collections. In addition to three live fashion shows, the day also will showcase the unique products, services and businesses of more than 100 Muslim female exhibitors.

Besides discovering the latest modest fashion and Muslim female-run businesses, attendees also can take advantage of educational seminars, networking opportunities and presentations by motivational speakers.

Saverah Women Expo is the ideal platform for contemporary ideas and original talent as well as an opportunity to discover, make new contacts, be inspired and motivated – in all aspects of life. The expo aims to deliver the message that Muslim Women are capable of taking on greater responsibility, building businesses, developing careers and achieving success independently in our new and modern world.

The event will no doubt be marking the calendar of every Muslim woman in and around London. For more information, visit

Afghan Artisan Sughra Hussainy Featured on International Women’s Day


As the world notes the achievements of women on March 8, International Women’s Day, a newly opened exhibition, presented by the Smithsonian’s Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, casts a spotlight on young Afghan women artists and arts entrepreneurs who are reviving the culture and economy of their country. ‘Turquoise Mountain; Artists Transforming Afghanistan,’ which opened on March 5 and runs through January 2017, tells a powerful human story of resilience and creativity amidst the ruins of war in Afghanistan, focusing on the lives of the young Afghan artists living and working there.

Sughra Hussainy, a young painter who was orphaned as a child, went on to study at Turquoise Mountain’s arts institute in Kabul. For Hussainy, who lives with her brother in western Kabul, art is a source of solace and hope. For this exhibition, she and two friends have made all the raw material-including paper, pens, and pigments-to create a piece of illumination work and calligraphy.
