There was an eclectic mix of vendors showing their products, some even made in Brunei. In an interview with Brudirect.com, Hani Masir, Co-Founder of Covered by Anisa shared her journey and story behind her muslimah friendly fashion line. “After studying abroad, I came back to Brunei and found the need for comfortable, weather friendly and covered clothing. We (me and my sister) rebranded our existing brand and design our own clothing line.” When asked on her expectations during this event she said that “we will be having a mix and match offers for our shawls”.

The event also saw MSME doing charity causes to give back to the community. Almas Volunteer club are doing a mission called “Mission to Help 500 Orphans”. The aim of the mission is to ease of the burden of orphans and children in need for the start of the school term. Visitors can drop off school supplies such as bags, stationeries, calculators and books to their booth from 10 am to 10pm throughout the event. According to Wadi Sharun of Almas Volunteer club, “we accept any forms of school supply donations for both primary and secondary school students”.


Another charity drive held at the venue is by Jambangs Barber Shop. Based in Tanjung Bunut, Abdul Malek , a staff of the locally run company stated that “we are here (ICC) as this event focuses on charity. For every one customer’s hair cut , we will cut one orphan’s hair in return for free.”
