Gone are those days when it was difficult for Muslim women to find clothing that was both trendy and modest. Thanks to the emerging new trend of Islamic fashion, we all can pat ourselves on the back now because the fashion industry is finally taking one step at a time towards inclusivity! ??

When she converted to Islam in 2011, she couldn’t find many options for modest clothing and realised that many other Muslim women shared the same sentiments ☹️
