Professor Reina Lewis takes Faith & Fashion on the road from London College of Fashion to New York to focus on the creativity and controversies that characterise Muslim fashion in America today. In collaboration with New York Public Radio, Reina hosts a panel discussion, live streamed as part of Muslim/American, an interactive and intimate series of live performances in The Greene Space at WNYC.
The debate focuses on the ways in which Muslims in America are contributing to and influencing fashion in its broadest sense, from modest dressing to Islamic and ethnic fashion. Reina is joined by the perfect style council, made up of Asma T Uddin, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of altmuslimah.com; fashion blogger and cultural commentator Nadia Azmy (Winnie Détwa) and designers Nyla Hashmi and Fatima Monkush, whose fashion brand Eva Khurshid New York (2009-11) provided modest yet fashion-forward clothing to New Yorkers and beyond.
