For anyone whose hasen't seen the documentary, I posted it
This is exactly why I'm not a fan of Jones'
. Muslim ladies from the richer Gulf nations do actually wear those clothes. They just have to wear outer garments over their clothing when in public/presence of non-related men :P
It's not that Fashion Babylon isn't interesting, it is. Air Babylon was better. However, there are a lot of factually incorrect statements presented as facts in this book.
