Religious fashion

Here's a great look inside Fashion Week in Jakarta, Indonesia. Designers face some unique challenges when trying to create cutting edge fashion for Muslim women who want to look great and still adhere to the dress code standards of Islam.

    Well the media does it again.
    The capitalists do it again.
    Distort facts.
    The concept of hijab is to cover the aura of a women and to avoid peeple treating women like commodities. NOt instead to be dressed like multicoloured magnets. A piece of advice to the media and the capitalists stop using headlines and events such as the one in the article to distort reality. There is nothing such as religious fashion either in christianity, islam, hinduism or any other religion.

    they look like women from a time before the birth control pill was discovered!! outdated.

    we have moved on to unisex times, men and women are the same. and children are like chinese toys, that are imported from low-cost labor third world nations.

    I can see it now Eboo Patel, Imam Rauf, Daisy Khan et al marching in the St. Patrick's Day parade clothed in bright green thawbs and heads topped with blazing green hijabs and flawed korans in their arms shouting "Death to Infidels, Christians and Jews". Let us hope this never happens but as followers of the flawed koran, they visualize it in their brainwashed minds out of necessity to fulfill their koranic dreams.

    This is amazing! They have taken a few simple scarfs and some wax fruit from the craft aisle at Wal-Mart and transformed it into clothing any woman would be proud to wear. My wife is having a birthday soon. Looks like my shopping is done.

      That presumes you can be dragged past the toy aisle in a Wal-Mart to get the required items. Talk about a leap of faith ...

      Just sayin'
