Muslim women: A road to glamour while covering up is a new fashionista

Back in the 90s in Muslim community the hijab was a non-fashionista thing, wearing a black colour hijab was the only thing Muslim women and young girls wore but this era is more colourful and full of glamour.

As everyone can see today’s women wear hijab of different styles involving a true image of fashion and glamorous, not just covering their head and chin but wearing a twisty type hijab leaving their chins to uncover to show the sparkling earrings wearing a high toned makeup. 20-years back hijab was a non-fashion thing but today is beyond your thoughts.

A researcher at Singapore Nanyang Technological University, Jailanee said in an interview that, when I was young it was just a black colour veil you wore just to cover your head, now she is 45 and a co-author of a paper Hijabistas, composed of word ‘Hijab’ and ‘Fashionista’, the paper labels the new mode of Muslim girls who wore stylish hijab in a Muslim way.

She says this is a change by social media, which has increased the demand of modest Muslim in the society. Another inspiring personality an Indonesian designer Dian Pelangi is one of the reasons to explore modest fashion among young Muslims. Pelangi with 5 million followers on Instagram she is famous among young ones to remain stylish while covering up. She is in the list of 500 most influencing personalities according to a London based website 2015-16.

Muslim communities such as Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore are more moderate than middle-east Muslim communities. Another brand ‘Seek Refuge’ a California based modest street-wear clothing line taking a keen interest in young Muslim women, its founder Shazia Ijaz a 26-years young breed thinks more liberally. Few of the models on her website, which features loose jackets, sweaters, and jeans, wear the headscarf, and part of her stated mission is to empower Muslim women, she says modest doesn’t have to mean the hijab.

But the fashion industry isn’t without criticism, a Somali- American model Halima Aden who’s the first one to spot the cover of a sport’s magazine wearing a head to heel burkini swimsuit was criticized by the Muslim community saying her appearance in the magazine is representing Muslim women, both her appearance and the burkini were suitable for a Muslim women to show up.

Fashion consultant Franka Seoria says she is worried that the glam factor is getting out of hand, and wants to return the industry to Muslim values. She says fashion should be not something like an ugly competition to be the most glamorous it has to be in the line to do good things not making things bad and ugly that no one wants to see ever.
