thank you - it just makes me sad that ppl think of muslims as these ultra-strict, sort of dour ppl ...i know not all think that way, but that's the perception i always seem to be running up against. I promise, we're totally fun ppl!!!

I have nothing against Muslims at all, infact i am quite fond of them. just because of the amazing people I came across and there way of living..their pure hearts and how clean they are..thats what i call modesty...I am sorry vikingqueen that you have to feel that way...Something else I remeber this muslim girl telling me about how in muslim prayers..they all pray together in one line...there is no special rug or mat for a king nor royalities...a begger and a king may pray together...that amused me...

I am quite suprised that TFS allowed to post such article..because it naturally arises poltical arguements and misuderstanding...And what might not be offensive to others might be offensive to some..and its a touchy subject religion...

Hanne...when I made my statement I was aware of your post...thats why I made it...Isnt Hijab a symbol of Muslim woman? so what is there to talk about in fashion? questions like modesty contradicting the religion and other questions would led to ( not fashion relate talk) and may hurt memebers of that faith..

Dulcisima as long as the thread proceeds in a civilized manner, I don't see a problem with this thread. There is so much focus on "western" fashion, I think it is nice for once to hear about fashion statements that are not traditionally western.

i think actually, that the lebanese designer Elie Saab had a lot to do with creating awarness about muslim influence on fashion...due mainly to the fact that a lot of couture customers come from middle-eastern countries...
i noticed that he makes a lot of transitional pieces, as in they can easily be modified to be worn in a less or more covered up fashion...it's amazing what buying power can do, eh?!!:p
some examples....(all style.com, elie saab spring 2005 couture)

i'm sure it will stay civilized...hopefully
a good example of a fashionable muslim woman is of course queen rania of jordon...personally (not for religious reasons ) i like it when she wears a headscarf, cause it proves that you CAN look stylish with it on! something i struggle with everyday, trust me!
(all from her thread in star style)
