Nuratiqah Madom •  Dec 27, 2017

When we talk about modest wear in the past, we would be reminded of the traditional clothing that our mothers would don, which is suitable for Muslimahs but not necessarily fashionable enough for casual wear in this day and age. Well, fret not because modest wear has since evolved, following super chic and fashionable trends, all thanks to the rise of various modest apparel labels!
