Wrapped with a reason- A style revolution and freedom to decide
Dr Arooj Khan2/25/2021 11:29:37 PM
I know religious motivation to dress modestly sounds old-fashioned and archaic, but the modest fashion that has evolved in response is not. Sometimes, I can't believe how much the fashion world has changed. I remember when I decided against going to a wedding a few years ago because I couldn't find a dress that was cute or appropriate enough despite searching for weeks. Now, I'm in total awe that finding something to wear for any occasion is so easy, in store or just a click away online! I'm happy that I was part of the generation that actually witnessed the "Modest Wear Movement" and totally got to reap its benefits. As a visible, modern Muslim woman, one of my main goals in life is to incorporate my religious beliefs into the way I live, which has been mostly a Western upbringing. That also includes the way I dress.
Modest fashion for Muslim women is not just a short-lived fad; it is a need because it is something that is embedded in our mindset and beliefs that will remain with us for life. Fashion designers and retail companies recognize that and acknowledge the incredible niche there, and are creating collections that cater to those needs. Social media has furthermore strengthened this grid by providing a hassle free medium for making these collections reach the ones who need. Instagram is on the forefront of this revolution. Many modest fashion pages marketing modest fashion have followers in thousands, which is ample to show that modest fashion has many takers. Online shopping gives is preferred these days as it gives the privilege of seeing numerous style options without having to venture out in tiring and noisy markets. Stores like Designer burqa store, the urbanhijabee, selling modest fashion have been leading this revolution by providing modish and customized items. The best part is that such online branding gives equal access to latest fashion for both urban and rural areas.
Most importantly Adopting modest fashion is so much more than being a Muslim. It is not something that belongs to one particular group of people, and is open to anyone. It's an inclusive trend seen from the street to the runaway, and it's here to stay. It is a style that resonates with a lot of people, regardless of religious or cultural background. Modest fashion means something different for everyone, and cannot possibly be encompassed in just two words. But for me, modest fashion is what I show, what I don't show, and how I do that while never compromising my sense of style or beliefs. This freedom to choose is a part of woman emancipation.
