Ramadan is such a huge celebration for Muslims around the world and it starts with the sighting of the new moon in the ninth month of the year. Muslims follow a different calendar from Christians which is called a lunar calendar, and as a result the date of the celebration changes yearly and ends with the holiday Eid al-Fitr. This year Ramadan starts on the 2nd of April ending on May the 1st with the Eid celebration.

Eid al-Fitr is traditionally celebrated with new clothes, tasty treats and gifts. A shopping festival provides British Muslims with popular items like fashion clothes, food and home wear. This is definitely the busiest time of the year for Muslims in the world this is because people are either buying gifts for themselves or their friends and loved ones.

According to research, British Muslims spend an estimated 200 million pounds during the Ramadan period. If you are worried about what to wear to match such great feasting a capsule wardrobe might just fit the mindset that the Ramadan is adopting. In the light of health and wellness let us avoid the traditional meals and go for healthier options said Shelina Janmohamed, Vice President of Islamic Marketing at advertising company Ogilvy.
