by Jill D'Alessandro & Reina Lewis & Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz & Remona Aly & Alex Aubry & Shiva Balaghi & Laura L. Camerlengo & Sariya Cheruvallil-Contractor & Shelina Janmohamed & Carla Jones & Su'ad Abdul Kabeer


This dazzling exploration of contemporary Muslim modest dress, from historic styles to present-day examples, accompanies a major exhibition and reveals the enormous range of self-expression through fashion achieved by Muslim men and women. Filled with documentary and fashion photography as well as stills from runway shows and the media, this book explores the ways Muslim style cultures are shaped by global trends and religious beliefs. From high-end couture to streetwear, this volume shows how established and diaspora regions, such as Dubai, Jakarta, London, and New York, are homes to thriving industries that create classic and cutting-edge looks. Accompanying these images are essays and personal narratives by leading voices that touch on everything from the history of modest dress to social media.
