I read a very interesting article about a Danish-Palestinian woman called Samar Safar and her business, the internet based hijab design of Islamic Moon. I’m really sorry guys, all the info is in Danish 😦 But this girl seems very creative, and arranges everything from shopping days, to color analysis, and to drawing and making your dream hijab outfit. Here are some of her designs;
How in the world can somebody combine ancient and traditional head covering with the latest new fashions from the western world’s catwalks? That was the question which inspired 28-year old designer and color consultant Samar Safar to develop a design concept for Muslim women who wish to wear a headscarf, but at the same time, want to look hip and modern in their clothing.
Today she runs “Islamic Moon” – an internet based design company, which as the first of its type in Denmark offers designs which can be worn either with or without a Muslim headscarf – hijab.
“Many of my designs can be quickly adjusted, so the women can have the hijab on when they are out, but then let their hair out when they are home or visiting family. In this way the design adapts Muslim culture at the same time that it takes into account the individual woman’s wish for clothing. For example fit, color and cut” says Samar Safar. Read more here.
Personally I think it’s wonderful that sisters around the world find creative ways to promote the hijab and to make money 🙂 Some of her designs look cool, but I wish she had pictures of the real thing (like what she has produced earlier).
What do you think?
