Compass - Fashion and Faith: Muslim Style
A new breed of fashion designers is turning heads on the Australian catwalk catering to Muslim women eager for cutting edge designs better suited to our lifestyle and climate.
For women in particular, dress is an integral part of Muslim life: it embodies a moral and behavioural code dating back to Islam’s earliest days. Dress-codes vary from country to culture, but modesty remains the cornerstone. Now Australian Muslim designers, weary of black synthetic imports, are reinterpreting modest fashion with their own stylish, versatile and distinctive garments specifically tailored for Australia’s lifestyle and climate. Compass follows several upcoming designers preparing for Ramadan, the busiest time on the Muslim calendar.
