Sheikha Hub, a fashion portal created specifically to assist online entrepreneurs, business owners and designers in the Islamic fashion industry, was officially launched recently at an exclusive event which was held at the Publika Shopping Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The event which was graced and officiated by special Guest of Honor, Duli Yang TeramatMulia Raja PuanMuda Perlis TuankuHajjahLailatulShahreenAkashah, a member of the Royal Family of Perlis, was also attended by more than 100 distinguished guests and dignitaries.

The first of its kind to have ever been launched in Malaysia, Sheikha Hub aims to help support both start-ups as well as seasoned entrepreneurs promote their products and services to potential customers and investors locally and in the region. The hub will help disseminate information on their product offerings, promote collaboration between brands and businesses as well as highlight innovation and best practices through Sheikha Hub’s various channels which includes on-ground activities, innovative social networking and value-added technological services online as well as informative business initiatives such as seminars, forums and business tips from established business owners.

“Sheikha Hub launched their first model search competition two months ago, receiving an overwhelmingly positive response. We are

delighted to be giving this opportunity to potential muslimah models as there is so much untapped talent out there,” commented DatinNorzihan.

The top three spots were won by SyahiraShaharudin, ShahiraAffandee and AinulNadirah Ahmad Basri in first, second and third place consecutively. The grand prize winner walked away with a modelling contract worth RM 10,000, return flight tickets to Jakarta and a new wardrobe worth RM 2,000.

“We also encourage business owners, online entrepreneurs as well as local Islamic fashion designers to register the details of their businesses in our online directory at www.sheikhahub.com for free, as this will give them another platform to catapult their businesses further. For those registered under our directory, we provide them with special privileges as well as collaboration opportunities. With more than 10,000 likes already on our social media Facebook page, business owners will find it beneficial to be registered as we promote their businesses to our fans on a regular basis,” continues Datin Norzihan.
