One of the most popular Australian Muslim fashion labels gaining national and international recognition is Hijab House.
Leading the way in faith fashion, Hijab House aims to provide stylish, modest clothing for young Muslim women, and the Australian fashion industry is taking notice.
It is set to feature in this year’s FASHFEST, Canberra’s very own rendition of Sydney and Melbourne fashion week.
Producer of FASHFEST, Steven Wright says, “We look for designs that reflect a contemporary Australian society and in doing that you end up with a lot of diversity. You know it reflects our multicultural heritage.”
There are now over 20 stores open in Sydney catering for modest clothing, many of which are located in the areas on Bankstown and Lakemba.
With almost 40 per cent of Muslims born in Australia, the demand for modest yet stylish clothing is bursting at the seams.
For Muslim women, dress is a fundamental part of their Islamic lifestyle. It embodies a moral and behavioural code and although dress sense and style may differ globally, modesty remains the foundation for all Muslim women.
