Is Muslim fashion finally 'on trend'?

For Muslim women hoping to combine stylish clothes with modest dressing, Vivienne Westwood protegĂ© Barjis Chohan may have the answer. And with Muslim fashion worth an estimated £59 million globally, the rest of the fashion world is sure to follow
Barjis Chohan's AW 2012

It's 2012. We're bored to death with debates about the hijab. Why women wear it. Whether they are coerced into it. "Oh, but I bet they have a lovely head of hair under there". SNORE. All this talk neglects the role of fashion in the hijab's popularity. It's just easier to be a fashionable Muslim in Britain these days – walk down Oxford street and stereotypes of the hijab as bland and restrictive are laughable. There are gaggles of friends wearing bright leopard print H&M shawls as a hijab, girls with a mountain of fabric piled up to create a beehive style hijab - hell, I even saw a lady wearing a glittery blue cardigan as a headscarf once (I saw the sleeve hanging out).
But mainstream brands seem reluctant to target Muslim women, so the hijab-wearing shopper has to be extra discerning on the highstreet. The whole outfit has to be considered. This means that unless you are wearing an abaya, you need to learn how to layer. Maxi dresses need a jacket, midi skirts need leggings or trousers underneath them and low-cut tops need a sufficiently long hijab. Barjis Chohan, a protegé of Vivienne Westwood, is looking to make things easier with her clothing label, Barjis. Chohan saw a gap in a market flooded with polyester abayas and over-embellished abayas that are impractical and only suitable for special occasions. "Young, fashionable Muslims are struggling to buy clothes from the Western, high-street shops, because of the unsuitable hemlines and necklines, and they resort to wearing layers, which are very hot and uncomfortable in the summer. So that is why I created Barjis, to fill this gap, with practical, high-quality, modest and fashionable day and evening wear for the busy, modern woman." Her autumn/winter collection features abayas with peter pan collars and dresses designed to be worn over trousers.

Indian Hijab Style

The colourful world of India is where we're going for the next instalment of around the world hijab style. Although similar to Pakistani fashion which I have already done a post on, there are some key differences between the two countries trends.

I dug up a lot of photos for this post so I will only post my favorites..

First, well I haven't seen one of these before - an Indian sari with a hijab, lovely! That red is so vibrant and bold:

Indians certainly heart their patterns and colours, this mum has thrown them on like it's no ones business and the end result is quite stunning, I like the material shes tossed over her head:

Fashion bloggers on Muslim style

In recent years there has been a surge of interest in online faith-based and modest fashion through online shopping, social media (Twitter and Facebook) and blogs. Although this phenomenon is a global one, an emerging distinctive voice and aesthetic can be observed here in Australia.
The domain of the blogger has become a particularly powerful one. Apart from commentating on ‘what’s hot and what’s not’ and driving new trends, fashion blogs have become prime real estate for advertising.

In December 2011 influential fashion bloggers Mya Arifin and Delina Darusman-Gala  took part in a photo shoot at the Museum as part of the development of the exhibition Faith fashion fusion: Muslim women’s style in Australia (open from 5 May). Mya and Delina discussed their unique sense of style and how they got interested in blogging with curators Melanie Pitkin and Glynis Jones.
Tell us a bit about yourself and your blog?
Mya: I was born in Indonesia but I’ve been in Australia since I was three years old… My blog, ‘MyazFashionSpot’ is mostly directed to Muslim women about fashion and how to dress stylishly but modestly at the same time. In saying that, however, it’s not only for Muslim women, but anyone in general looking for tips about how to dress modestly and different looks and outfits to put together.
Delina: ‘MuslimStreetFashion’ is basically about Muslims and their street wear, a bit of my life, how to wear your hijab different ways and where to get clothes from. It also features shops in the Muslim community, just to help out the Muslim community.
How would you describe your personal style?
Mya: I like to try different styles, I don’t set my mind into one category because I like to be open minded about creativity because that’s what creativity is about – not just about one certain aspect, but you can branch into different areas of it. So, I would call my style ‘open’.
Delina: I would describe it as quirky, personal, what I feel like on the day.
How does your faith inform the way that you dress?
Mya: I try to dress as modestly as I can in my style even though I do dress a little bit differently to a lot of Muslim hijabis, but I do try to keep it as modest as I can, but also different and creative.
Who are some of your fashion influences?
Mya: I have a few designers that I really like including Rabia Z. There’s a famous entrepreneur and she’s also a blogger and a Facebooker, her name is Dina Toki-o. I really enjoy her style. She’s one of my favourites.
Delina: From the Muslim side there is Yuna – she’s a singer, musician and also Hinata Joum, she’s a designer.
What inspired you to start a blog?
Mya: I knew my friend Delina was starting a blog and I had always wanted to do something about fashion and creativity and to put that somewhere to express myself so I thought why not blogging. Blogging is out there – it’s on the web and everyone can access it so I thought why not, it’s a good way to reach people on the web.

Delina: All my friends used to ask me where I purchased my clothes from, so I decided to setup the blog to help them out. I also wanted to let people know that Muslim women can be stylish as well… I started the blog in June 2010. I was up one night, it was about 12 o’clock and I said to myself ‘I am going to start this thing’, so I started, and from then I haven’t looked back.
Are you getting approached by designers and retailers to promote their clothing?
Delina: I’ve got quite a few approaches. I get a lot of emails now, recently I got one for this new swimwear label called ‘Modest Sea’. It’s Muslim swimwear and it’s really different to what you see now. It’s really cute and girly… I have also had people from websites asking if they could put their advertising on my blog – this is really exciting.
What are some of your favourite shops and designers?
Delina: I’m really loving Mimco and Hijab House. Australian Designers would have to be ‘Muhsinah’ (my friend Wasiela), she’s an upcoming designer and I love her stuff, but international designers would have to be ‘Maysaa’ Hana Tajima, Dina Torki-o I could go on!

Where do you like to shop?
Mya: I shop online, I shop in the retail malls and I like bargain shops – I shop everywhere! It just depends what I’m looking for and what I find.
What are some of the challenges of having a blog?
Delina: Some of the challenges are getting permission from people before posting anything up, and finding something before anybody else finds it so you can be the first… It is a bit hard blogging around the family because I do have an almost 2 year old who likes to run amok. I mostly blog late at night when he is asleep so I stay up and then I realise it’s 3 in the morning, but that’s the only time I can do it.
Do you have any plans to move into other online events?
Delina: I recently worked on a hijab tutorial course and makeup course… I’m also starting a wedding hijab thing soon.

Hana of Style Covered, based in the UK

On how her religion impacts her day-to-day style…
“I’m a convert to Islam; I didn’t always dress this way.  The main thing is that I feel covered.  By that, I do of course mean literally i.e. wearing a scarf and covering my body, but it’s as much a state of mind.  To know that it is actually possible to feel beautiful without being sexy.  It also comes down to simplicity and shunning the ‘excess’ that comes with fashion.  Most of the time I’m working from home or with girlfriends so I don’t even think about covering up, but going out just means I pick from a different set of clothes, or add a layer or two.”
On the challenges she faces marrying fashion and her faith…
There are always challenges in getting what you look like to be reflective of who you are, and having lived both, I think it’s no more or less difficult having to cover.  It’s just different.  A different aesthetic.  It took a while to get to know myself this way, but it was exciting being able to experiment and having a whole new set of tools to play about with.
On the Muslim style blogging community…
“Being a part of such a small community of bloggers (especially when I first started) you get to know everyone.  We’d do our best to support what everyone else was doing because we know first hand how hard it can be.  But it’s also vibrant and a great network to be a part of.  Different countries all have their own particular style, and it’s wonderful to have such a diverse cross-section of style at your fingertips.”

Balancing Fashion & Faith: A Look at Muslim Style Bloggers
By: Taylor Davies

Follow on Bloglovin
If there’s one thing I learned from my second IFB conference, it’s that our community is more ecclectic and diverse than I ever imagined. We have members from all over the world, representing an absolute multitude of races, religions, creeds and cultures. IFB is basically this fabulously chic digital melting pot.

Though our vast numbers and widespread characteristics really showed themselves at the conference, I think all these different people can be under-represented in our content. Color me curious, but I just want to know more about all these bloggers who aren’t –  let’s face it – skinny white girls with a camera and a closet. [Editors note: I am perhaps one of these girls, so I get to say that.]

In an effort to explore our community and get to know the different niches that make up the style blogging world, IFB is going to feature successful bloggers who represent the best of their demographic. To kick things off, get to know some of the chic Muslim style bloggers of IFB.
