GtR. The research has potential to contribute to improvements in community cohesion and interfaith dialogue by drawing out the links between Muslim, Christian, and Jewish communities.


By putting the practices of modest dress of these three faiths into relationship with each other, and by locating them in the frame of fashion, our research promises to draw points of connection between faiths and between the religious and the secular that could help remove the stigma often attached to visible religious dress. Clothes, especially women's, are often understood by group members and external observers as a sign of community identity but they are also often regarded as outside the realm of fashion (characterized as modern, 'western', individuating, fast paced) and relegated to the domain of costume or group uniform (understood as expressive of ahistorical, unchanging, essentialised group rather than individual identities).

Fashion’s Missed Muslim Market Opportunity. LONDON, United Kingdom — Muslim fashion. Simply juxtaposing these two words can cause consternation in some circles. Interpretations of a Koranic verse (an-Nur chapter 24, verse 30) advocating modesty and espousing appropriate female attire (enforced by law in some countries) have long restricted what many Muslim women can wear, distancing them from Western fashion culture.

But, today, experts say, things are changing and increasing numbers of Muslim women want to dress fashionably and express their individuality through clothing. The shift is being driven, in part, by significant demographic trends in the Muslim world. “There are varying estimates of the Muslim population, but what we use is 1.8 billion, of which about 43 percent, so just shy of 800 million, are under 25,” said Shelina Janmohamed, vice president of Ogilvy Noor, an Islamic branding practice that’s part of global marketing and public relations giant Ogilvy & Mather.
