  1. For as long as I can recall, I've surrounded myself with powerful, accomplished women who wear gold-embroidered, paisley-patterned scarves around their thick, dark hair. These scarves and headwraps encapsulate everything I admire about my Middle Eastern ancestors. They embody not only beauty but also thousands of years of history and tradition. Each beaded embellishment is carefully sewn onto the garment not just for the enjoyment of others, but also to make the wearer feel exquisite, relaxed, and fashionable.
  2. I'm not sure why, and I'm not sure how to explain it. It's incomprehensible. Trends and fads are appropriate for inanimate items such as hair, clothing, automobiles, and so on. However, I am irritated by name phases, fads, and patterns. TRADITIONAL NAMES ARE MY FAVORITE. I dislike trendy, new names for both boys and girls, regardless of race. I've never had children, but if I did, I wouldn't give them names like Dweezil Moon Unit or Faith Sunday, much less a modern black name. I wouldn't call them Trip or Axel either. Aiden is acceptable because it is a common name (even though most people are unaware of this), and Josh and Jennifer are both traditional names.
  3. However, this isn't the first time the festival has taken place. Singapore, Dubai, Monte Carlo, New York, London, and Paris have also hosted presentations. The 32nd IFF runway show will take place in Cannes. Dato'Raja Rezza Shah, a member of the royal family of Kelantan, a Malaysian state, established the IFF in 2006. He aims to transform it into a global event for the Muslim world by highlighting the richness of the Muslim world's customs and cultural heritage. The event also has a financial component. "In a study of the global Islam economy," according to the IFF, as quoted by Thomson Reuters and the Dinard Standard, "the fashion and accessories industry could hit 484 billion dollars by 2019." Political concerns also play a part. And if they aren't supposed to be the centre of attention. The IFF's mission is to foster an Islamic fashion vision "far from the myth of the burqa and the hijab," despite using "the charm of modesty" as a guide. It's about promoting "the expression and understanding of imagination such that its shows are the embodiment of Muslim fashion, flexible and eternal, of the most dynamic," according to the IFF.

  5. It's the year 2012. Debates over the hijab are boring us to death. Why should women put it on? Whether or not they are compelled to do so. "But I'm sure they have a beautiful head of hair under there," says the narrator. SNOOP. All of this discussion ignores the role of fashion in the success of the hijab. It's simply better to be a trendy Muslim in Britain these days – a stroll down Oxford Street disproves misconceptions of the hijab as dull and restricting. Girls with a mountain of fabric stacked up to create a beehive style hijab, girls with a mountain of fabric piled up to create a beehive style hijab - heck, I also saw a lady wearing a glittery blue cardigan as a headscarf once (I saw the sleeve hanging out). However, since western brands are unable to market to Muslim women, hijab-wearing shoppers must be extra cautious on the high street. The entire ensemble must be considered. Unless you're wearing an abaya, this means you'll need to learn how to layer. Maxi dresses need a scarf, midi skirts need leggings or shorts, and low-cut tops necessitate a long hijab. With her clothes company, Barjis, Barjis Chohan, a protege of Vivienne Westwood, is trying to make it simpler. Chohan saw a void in a market filled with impractical polyester abayas and over-embellished abayas that are only fit for special occasions.
