Dubai Modest Fashion Week took place from December 8th to December 9th. This fashion week is under a collection of five that happen worldwide under Modanisa Fashion Week. It was an eventful two days, filled with fashion shows, talk shows and so much more. Many Muslim influencers and bloggers attended and showed us what was happening behind the scenes, and what they thought of the looks.

Unfortunately, I didn’t go. So I watched behind the screens and try to soak in the amazing designs and styles of all the looks coming down the runway.
First of all, for those who don’t know, modest is a term to describe someone being humble and avoiding indecency. One way for one to appear modest, would be the way they may dress. Muslim women in particular usually dress in loose clothing, and clothing that is not too flashy in a sense. Some also choose to wear the hijab which covers ones head, hair and chest area. This is just a little description of what you may see from this fashion week.
I would just like to say that overall, I thought the collections and designs were absolutely breath taking. I especially fell in love with the gowns and dresses that were shown, as they all look so beautiful and elegant. I saw a lot of different styles that I’ve never seen before and was actually so excited to see.
I personally don’t like getting into the controversial side of what it means to be modest and some of the looks presented. However, I will say that some of the looks did make me disappointed as they were in no terms modest at all. I am not saying that the looks that didn’t have a hijab (head-covering) were not modest, as many of them were. I am saying that some of them weren’t due to how tight some of the clothing was, as well as the amount of skin showing on the body. I won’t get into specific designers, but I will say that I did see a few looks on the runway that did not represent modesty well. I know there was even more controversy during the London Modest Fashion Week earlier this year, and I am happy to say that I didn’t see as much this fashion week.
Overall, however I would just like to say that the designers did an amazing job presenting their collections, and showing the world how fashion can be both modest and fashionable.
The next few posts will be mini-collections of my favourite designs and styles by the designers at Dubai Modest Fashion Week.
