A decade in fashion

This year Doorjee boutique will be celebrating their tenth anniversary. Since inception, Doorjee has created design in lieu with the customer's taste and sense of styling. The patrons themselves have regarded Doorjee as a boutique with a difference. That is why Doorjee stands for trendy, elegant and unique fashion statements.

The forte of the boutique has been hand block prints, intricate work of karchupi, and detail embroidery on silk, georgette, crepe and cotton. Embellishments in vibrant work with sequins and stones have given their Eid collections a distinct grace this year. A bright colour scheme chosen has been chosen from suave maroon, to elegant black and sizzling red.

The georgette kameez are priced between Tk 2000 Tk 5000, and cotton kamiz between TK 1000 TK 2500. Doorjee, House # 7, Road # 23/A, Gulshan- 1, Near Gulshan 1 Post Office).

Zahid's zakat offer

The bustle of Ramadan keeps us preoccupied: the day-to-day chores, shopping for the family and regular iftar. Zakat is integral to the observance of Ramadan. Almost every family has at least some members who may be in some kind of need and since Eid is all about sharing and coming to the aid of those who need it, this is the ideal time to extend a helping hand. And probably the best way to give zakat to family members is in the form of gifts of clothes instead of cash.

This year, Zahid Crafts comes with an array of choices for zakat, to make your preparations for this Eid a little easier. There, you will find saris and lungi from various price ranges for you to choose from according to your budget. They also have a very efficient home delivery system, which will undoubtedly help by saving you some precious time.

Apart from their zakat offer, Zahid Crafts also has their own collection of panjabi, fatua and t-shirts for you to do your own shopping from.
