Maqilla Raya Breaking Beauty Stereotypes By Featuring Down Syndrome Models

Ramadan is almost over and that only means Raya is around the corner! You would’ve seen all your local designers showcase their Raya 2017 collection but the label that is really making headlines is Maqilla Boutique and their Raya 2017 collection.

Di bulan mulia, Ramadan al Mubarak, kami di Maqilla Boutique berbesar hati melalui kerjasama dengan Persatuan Sindrom Down Malaysia untuk berbakti kepada golongan istimewa ini. Setiap pembelian produk Basic Raya Collection, RM10 akan disalurkan kepada persatuan ini. Jom sama-sama kita membeli sambil menghulurkan bantuan kepada golongan down syndrom ini kerana "You are your own kind of Beautiful" ㅤㅤ Tiada apa yang lebih baik selain dengan kita memberi dan merubah kehidupan di sekeliling kita, Insha Allah ㅤㅤ Disini ialah si cilik adik Khoh Hui Qi dan Siti Marina Frohlich memperagakan koleksi Basic Raya Maqilla. ㅤㅤ #MaqillaBoutique #MaqillaRaya #RayaCollection #BajuRaya #Raya2017 #DownSyndrome #PersatuanSindromDownMalaysia #MyVoiceMyCommunity

With the slogan “You are your own kind of beautiful” Maqilla Boutique is in collaboration with the Down Syndrome Association of Malaysia aiming to create awareness on Down syndrome to spread the message that everyone is beautiful in their own way.

“Everyone is beautiful on the inside, and I feel like I’m beautiful,” said Paralympic athlete Siti Marina Frohlich who has Down syndrome. Siti Marina, 37, was one of the models in the campaign and described the experience as exciting  “It felt good (to model) and I was very happy,” she told The Star.

How beautiful is the collection AND the models modelling it?!
