Strange headgear 2 – Islamic fashion festivals/shows

There is an unwritten rule behind most Islamic fashion shows; the head should be covered. Because of this, and designers urge to be the most innovative and creative, we can often spot hybrid hijabs and crazy headgear in these shows. Last years Islamic fashion festival of Malaysia held in Jakarta was no exception.

What do you think about this? Would you use any of it?

    No 3 on special occasions and the last pic with a tunic/abaya that’s loose enough on the chest area.

    I find it amazing how head covers (islamic style or not) can be so chic and so beautiful! I am so in love with it! At once the woman becomes mystic and strikingly exotic.

    When I read ‘Strange headgear’, I began to think of the stuff from that Iranian fashion show some time back. Compared to that, all of these items are just so… normal! Seems to me that the second row on the left gives the best coverage of the lot, and it’s even reasonably pretty.

    Assalamu alaikum wrb! I just hope Muslim women understand that hijaab is beyond just a ‘headgear’. Out of all this, only two-brown and grey coloured ones serve the purpose.

    that brown one looks like a shower cap lol

    The purpley one in the 3rd row looks really nice on her. Totally not a look I could pull off! The last one is a nice idea, but it doesn’t look fully right in that picture. Maybe the colours…

    All a lil werid for me, except the last one brown one, very cute pic:)
    I would wear something like that!!!

    Cinnabon + Hijab = no.

    That one fourth down on the right is just too pastry-esque for me. Could be handy though, if you were out and really needed a snack.

  10. Sharshura says:

    I like the last one the most. Although I don’t know if I would wear those colores together.

  11. The one on the 4th row on the left the brown headgear looks like a showercap

    I think they are all interesting in terms of inspiration. But they look a bit hastily made . . . quick backstage creations . . . but what creativity and what beautiful directions they point toward! I think hijabi headgear is a wonderful area of opportunity for young designers.

    Assalamu Alaykum,

    How do any of these outfits fall under ‘islamic fashion’?

    I wouldnt wear any of them, even if it were only infront of women.. I think there are plenty of nicer outfits out there..

    I love most of these designs and you could really pull it of with the new styled long dress/burqas that are out know!
