Faith, Fashion, Fusion: Muslim Women’s Style in Australia
From street style to red carpet dresses, this book explores the emerging modest fashion market and the work of a new generation of Australian designers and retailers offering stylish clothing for Muslim and non-Muslim women.
The focus is a group of Sydney-based Muslim entrepreneurs designing, retailing and marketing stylish clothing for the growing number of Muslim women who want to dress creatively and fashionably while still expressing their faith. Many of these labels were founded by Muslim women whose own experience of putting on the headscarf and not being able to find modest fashionable styles led them to start designing and making their own clothes. Their stories and experiences are largely told in their own words with accompanying images of their fashion choices.
