This illustrator reimagined Hari Raya goodies as fashionable outfits and now we want them

Wear your favourite kuih on your sleeve.
Hari raya kuih fashion

It’s not even Ramadan, and we’ve already seen fashion brands launching their latest baju raya collections, and HBBs taking kuih orders online.

But nothing has made us stopped scrolling quite like Malaysian illustrator Namirah Abdullah‘s sketches, in which she reimagines kuih raya (Hari Raya snacks) as fashionable outfits. And they all look strangely good!

So, if you need inspo for your baju kurung this year, show these to your seamstress.

And if, like us, you geek out at BTS (behind-the-scenes, not the K-pop band) videos, Namirah doesn’t disappoint. She posted videos of her sketching these delicious outfits on her YouTube channel.

Like this one of her drawing the Biskut Mama Carey outfit:

And this one of Biskut Semperit:

She also turns other food and drinks into wearable art!

Namirah doesn’t just stop designing outfits inspired by kuih raya; she also puts her creative chops to other types of food and drinks, mainly those from her home country of Malaysia.

Check out these fun ‘fits she did that are incredible works of art:

What do you think? Would you wear any of these outfits? Or what food would you like to see turned into fashion?

For us, we enjoyed the humour and the creativity in these artworks. And if we have to commission Namirah to sketch us an outfit, it will have to be something trendy like the basque burnt cheesecake or maybe a steak à la Lady Gaga at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards
