This is a Swedish take on the Islamic hijab. Ofcourse it’s not all Islamic and wearable, but still it’s interesting. The show is a part of a research project about Islamic fashion in Europe, and it was held the 1st of October in the Nordic Museum of Stockholm. The designs are of Swedish young designers, and the models were styled by Mejsa Chaaroui, Iman Aldebebe and Karolina Brock.
All the pictures are taken from this site. I think the upper white headwear is styled in an interesting way.
Yes, I know that some (stupid) people are gonna go ballistic like “THAT IS NOT HIJAB, HOW CAN YOU SHOW THIS”. Well dear (stupid) readers, again I tell you, so maybe you will catch the point this time; This is a fashion blog. I post stuff that is inspired by or bear resemblence to the hijab as a veil. I sometimes post stuff that I myself would never wear, and neither would most hijabis. But inspiration, that is something else, and thats what this site is for. So get over yourself… I will talk more about this issue tomorrow, insha’a Allah.
And besides from these readers, what do you lovely readers think about this? Any style at all? I still think they have a looooong way to go. The style was not very elegant or colorful as I like it, and ofcourse there are so many don’ts to the collections that I haven’t got words. The positive thing is that Europe is starting to notice the “Islamic fashion”. What do you say?
