One of the popular items we featured at the Essence of Bellydance event from our early release was MBD’s Urban Shimmer ensemble. This gorgeous two piece can be mixed and matched in various ways. It’s a pretty snazzy outfit that dancers are wearing on and off stage. Much of our clothing can be worn as raqs couture for everyday fun and events. At “big city events” We often see ladies and some gents sporting our veils and long scarves in fashionable ways. With Urban Shimmer we wanted a hoodie to compliment the newer mix of dance styles in the raqs community. Many dancers were coming to class in jump suits with full hoods. That reminded us of some of the hooded garments in our own cultures. Not to mention, our resident archivist had been asking us to make a hooded jacket for her for such a long time. Finally we sat down and drafted it up. She loved it and it went into production.Urban Shimmer comes in a skirt and pants in the gold or silver fabric. We may not restock this particular thread for long so you’ll want to buy it while we’ve got it. No guarantee we can re-create this later. If there’s a style you’re looking for or need let us know. We’ll happily speak with you on the phone or email to help you develop the look you want. But first check through our outstanding costume and raqswear ready made for petite to plus and stock up.
