There was a time, in Malaysia, that wearing robe is not macho enough, too Arabic, classics, outdated,etc. I think the time have change, may be the robe will be a fashion again. Like hijab, the evolution of clothes in modern society have make the wear look attractive. Even I dont prefer to wear a robe, may be I should look into it.
Introduce by my friend through FB. A designer robe, Lomar Thobe make movement to make sure the survival of their Arab culture. Actually, fashion is about perspective, and popularity. As eastern culture have been blooming, there are an opportunity to show the world what middle east really are.
