Another event of Islamic fashion shows including known in addition to up and coming performers was held in London recently. It’s the second trend event sponsored by Turkish clothes brand Modanisa. The first one occurred in Istanbul this past year.
Fatumina Said is a Islamic fashion influencer, henna artist, also a PHD student who recently attended the occasion. Here’s a critique by her.
Observing the fantastic success of Istanbul Modest Fashion Week in 2016,
I had been really excited about meeting the small fashion influencers that are altering the awareness of hijabis across the planet, through the ability of the work and social websites.
As I entered the hotel, I had been guided to the very lovely area, with a beautifully decorated table in the middle of the room along with a violinist playing on the floor, as the guests were joyfully interacting with one another.
As more individuals entered, I had the chance to speak to other influencers such as Halima Aden, the very first hijab-wearing version on the catwalks of Milan Fashion Week along with Kanye West’s Yeezy runaway in addition to Melanie of Haute Hijab.
It had been great to see a lot of successful Muslim girls achieving amazing things, all in 1 room. She gave us a preview of her: “Just Like You” PSA video stating: ” This PSA movie is devoted to all of the Muslim girls that are unapologetic in their individuality and thrilled about their individuality and are pleased to be Muslim through those difficult times. It’s very important that we have our narrative and discuss our reality with the planet.
Adhering to the large tea, we’re all taken about on our own personal London Tour!
The subsequent two times that followed combined discussions from famous Muslim influencers and the catwalks of designers that arrived from throughout the world to adopt modest fashion.
Concerning clothes I did not know what to anticipate, will I go to get a very long abaya or cozy pants and heels or will I go to get a more classic look? I had all of these thoughts but I did not feel that the pressure to conform to certain, small manner is all about expressing yourself and it is fun because you have to be your own designer.
During those two days you’d see a different appearance, a few of the women were dressed in long and in depth kimonos that trailed the ground, a few opted for a more casual look with baggy pants and coaches, and others chose to choose funkier appearances and vivid flamboyant colors.
The catwalks were quite popular and sometimes you had to come at least twenty minutes before to procure a chair. The collections showcased by the designers were rather varied, some revealed sporty attires and many others more conservative clothes with long hijabs moving down to the knees and a few were quirkier and more vibrant. The catwalks were approximately half an hour long and they have been followed by discussions from the influencers.
Not as many people attended the discussions as much as the ones that came to the display room.
The display area was occupied constantly however I need the breaks in between the discussions and the displays were more since this could have given me the chance to devote some more time round the designer’s stalls.
Can I recommend this function? Yes, undoubtedly. It was a excellent chance to satisfy my favorite small fashion influencers on a private level and get advice from them.
It was well arranged, a few of the displays ran a bit late but they were largely on schedule.
The 1 advice I’d give to somebody who want to attend the event next year would be to dress professionally, perhaps it’s best that you have food beforehand, since you might not have time when you’re planning to attend everything. And most significantly simply relax and have fun!
