The British Muslim is an incredibly versatile individual, breaking stereotypes and fighting for their ultimate higher purpose. I am proud to be a British Muslim among 3,372,966 others in The United Kingdom. In combination with my passion for Textile Printing, I have created a collection that represents Islam in an art form.
My collection is more than just a physical representation of Islam, it is a voice given to all the women who still want to feel fashionable and part of the fashion community without having to showcase their skin or figure shape. I want to show my perspective of fashion for how versatile it truly is.
My initial inspiration behind this concept stemmed from the heartbreaking bombing in 2021 inside Masjid Al Aqsa, one of three beloved homes of prayer to Muslims all around the world. I remember seeing the news spread and the pain it caused me, knowing that these terror attacks are still happening now with no appropriate media coverage. A truly shattering experience, I struggle to epitomise the feeling upon seeing the destruction of the mosque.
Modest clothing is slowly beginning to emerge more and more in fashion but there is still a long way to go. My FMP showcases luxury modest clothing, a market that is for all women.
