It was only a matter of time before he arrived here. After the successful Istanbul Modest Fashion Week in 2016, followed by London Modest Fashion Week last April, Dubai Modest Fashion Week (DMFW) finally made its debut this month, although it actually took place over two days at Burj Park, and not on a whole week as its name suggests.
Assisted by hundreds of influential people, brands and emerging and established buyers, the event exhibited a series of collections of emerging and established designers, including those who presented their first modest fashion lines.
In case you do not know it, modest fashion is a big business, and it is only established to be bigger. According to businessoffashion.com, Muslim consumer spending is expected to reach $ 368 billion in 2021, of which modest fashion will represent 18 percent. That’s about $ 66 billion.
So, these women are definitely part of a new movement in fashion. We take a look at the 10 best DMFW 2017 looks.
