About Whirling Dervish

Whirling Dervish has the UK's most extensive and comprehensive collection of unique dancewear designs from Cairo to Casablanca, the universe and beyond. Authentic, rich fabrics, jewel encrusted accessories, veils, scarves, hip belts - everything you need!

We have Cabaret costumes available 'off the shelf' or for something really special let Whirling Dervish design and create a stunning costume just for you. Tribal, Gypsy and Folk costumes all carefully researched and sourced from North Africa and the Middle East. See our wide selection of jewellery and accessories, bracelets, armbands, chokers, for that finishing touch. All the latest trends and styles direct from Cairo. To order email Michelle Pender on michelle@whirling-dervish.co.uk

We accept most major Credit/Debit cards or cheque payments.

Our stock is carefully chosen for its originality, design and fabric. We import from Egypy, Turkey, India, the Middle East, the known universe and beyond. A dance teacher herself, Michelle travels regularly to Egypt and the Middle East to seek out new and interesting costumes and jewellery. As we have an extensive collection of goodies we have tried to represent most styles and designs on our website, but if you book the Whirling Dervish Bazaar you will see much much more.
