Islamic fashion gets international recognition
May '13
Islamic fashion is no more restricted to the countries inhabited by a considerable number of Muslim populations, but has got international recognition.
In fact, the growing popularity of the modest Islamic fashion sensibilities can be gauged by their increasing visibility on the glitzy international runways.
The Islamic fashion industry is experiencing a boom and Muslim designers are finally getting their due share of recognition in recent years.
As a result, more and more Muslim fashion events, highlighting the conservative yet sophisticated trends, are being organized globally.
Jakarta Fashion Week, which dedicated one full day for Islamic fashion shows in its schedule last year, featured several creations by talented Indonesian Muslim designers like Itang Yunasz, Irna Mutiara, Monika Jufry and Ronald V Gaghana.
American-born Muslim fashion designer Nailah Lymus, who is also the owner of the US-based modelling agency UnderWraps, recently produced a catwalk show for the upscale plus-size Islamic clothing label Ann Nahari in New York City.
In addition to catwalk presentations focusing on traditional and modern Muslim clothing, a hijab (Muslim women’s headscarf) making competition titled American Hijab Contest was organized earlier this month in Chicago. The contest saw Parsons alumnus Sarah Musa winning the title for her avant-garde design, which included a knitted hat teamed up with an A-lined camel coloured Japanese organic cotton quilted shirtdress, a turtleneck and slim pants.
