The Rise of the Modest Revolution
Dian Pelangi, Professor Reina Lewis, Kulsum Patel and Raishma Islam in conversation
FREE FOR STUDENTS!
Modest fashion is a billion dollar global business that is now influencing the mainstream market. Brands such as Dolce & Gabbana are catering to the modest buyer, hijab-wearing models are appearing in high-profile fashion and beauty campaigns and Muslim digital influencers command as many millions of followers as their non-covered counterparts.
We are thrilled to welcome digital influencer, designer and author of Hijab Street Style and Brain, Beauty, Belief, Dian Pelangi, who is joining us from her native Indonesia for a panel discussion on the different facets of the industry. Alongside her will be Reina Lewis, Centenary Professor of Cultural Studies at London College of Fashion, UAL who has been researching and publishing on modest fashion since the mid-2000s. Kulsum Patel, director and co-founder of Ayah – a modest fashion consultancy service will also be part of the panel. Our fourth speaker will be couturier Raishma Islam, whose eponymous brand launched in 1998 and caters for both modest non-modest markets.
The discussion will centre around the rise of modest fashion, how this is affecting the fashion and publishing market - with a particular emphasis on the Indonesian market and will also look at the similarities and differences in modest fashion around the world.
Modest fashion outfits provided by the brands Raishma and Dian Pelangi will be modelled during the event. RSVP Essential - please click here
