iReport: Women's fashion at Quran reading competition

CNN iReporter Sherbien Dacalanio attended yesterday's Quran reading competition in Quezon City, Philippines, and snapped photos of women attendees in colorful garb. Their attire, Dacalanio learned, reveals the particular ethnic group to which each woman belongs.

"Almost all the Muslim women wanted me to take photos of them, so I ask them to post in a group or solo," he says. "[They] ask me if I can photograph them and how much I charge for the photo. I reply them that it’s just my hobby to take photos and it’s free."
