Each piece has been created to embody a timeless elegance that transcends fleeting trends and maintains your modesty.

Each of our modest maxi skirts have been carefully crafted with practicality and durability in mind. For ease, they feature machine-washable fabrics and functional pockets – ideal for the modern woman on the go. But what truly sets us apart is our innovative vent design.

 

The iconic Shaheen Salim vent was meticulously crafted to provide full coverage while allowing for unrestricted movement. This unique feature ensures that our skirts not only look elegant but also offer unparalleled comfort and coverage. Whether you're navigating a busy workday or dancing the night away at an event, you can trust that a Shaheen Salim skirt will be able to keep up with your lifestyle.

Our Journey

 

In 2011, Shaheen Salim founded the eponymous British brand. Her vision was clear: to create stylish pieces that cater to modest-wearing women. Shaheen discovered, after several years as a working woman in Central London, that finding flattering modest workwear was a struggle. This inspired her to design modest maxi skirts that are well-suited for office wear as well as being tailored and timeless.

 

Having worked in the fashion industry for several years, Shaheen gained invaluable insights into the industry. With this knowledge, she laid the foundation of her entrepreneurial journey by pursuing a master's degree in purchasing and supply chain.

 

Production of the skirts was initially a challenge after exploring several options, Shaheen turned to a European supplier. This ensured greater control over both the quality and production processes, which led to the creation of our signature skirts that you will see online today.
