  1. I popped over and read the article which raises many interesting points, eg, spending vast sums of money to maintain modesty. I love the idea of having choice and more fashionable clothes whilst remaining ‘Islamically correct’ for want of a better phrase, but this can surely be achieved without the skinny jeans, tight-fitting tops, etc. That’s a beautiful photo of the designer at the top of the page, but she could still get that look with wide-legged pants, no?

  2. Thanks for reading it Safia and glad you enjoyed it. I think as Islamic fashion grows, we are going to see a lot of changes. I’m still working out how to dress modestly and my look changes between countries. In the UK I find it harder to find a style I like esp as I’m used to abayas in the UAE!
