For the first time in Amsterdam, the Netherlands capital will host a modest fashion week on December 14 to celebrate its diversity, Salam Gateway reported.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

“[Amsterdam] is a diverse, multicultural, and tolerant place,” Think Fashion co-founder Franka Soeria said in a statement on Thursday, December 5.

“We’ve chosen Amsterdam with a reason; to us, this city represents new cool and new hope,” said Franka, adding that the city also has a big customer base for modest fashion.

The organizer, Think Fashion, will open the three-day
Amsterdam Modest Fashion Week December 14 at the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam.

Kicking off the sixth event, the foundation’s first modest
fashion week was held in Istanbul in May 2016. Other events in London, Dubai, and
Jakarta took place later.

Thirty designers will participate in seven shows in the event.

“We have good buyers registered to come to the event and to add up we have also been contacting so many buyers, from boutique retailers, department stores to e-commerce. Hopefully, the result is good,” said Franka.

Modest Fashion

According to Islamic Fashion Design Council (IFDC), Muslims spent
about $322 billion on fashion in 2018. The hijab fashion industry is set to
reach $488 billion this year, WHYY reported.

Non-Muslim international fashion lines and retailers have been trying to tap into the niche market for modest clothing.

For example, high-end label Dolce & Gabbana has lately released
a collection of headscarves and coordinated abayas, the loose robes worn by
some Muslim women.

Islam emphasizes the concept of decency and modesty. Many authentic Prophetic hadiths quote that “modesty is part of faith”.

And the Islamic dress code is part of that overall teaching.
The majority of Islamic scholars agree that modesty is mandatory for both
Muslim men and women.
