Dubai is the Paris and Manhattan of abaya design. Emirati socialites love filmy, colorful long gowns that comply with Islamic modesty yet are as contemporary, elegant, and, yes, sexy as an evening dress. Abaya fashion changes as fast as the skyline. For special events, aficionados go to Das Collection, founded by sisters Reem and Hind Beljafla, where an abaya might be accented with green sleeves of a flowery Afghan tribal print, covered in a layer of black chiffon.—Susan Hack
