Underneath the veil
Modest culture has been altered, manipulated, and misinterpreted by many in defining the true meaning of Islam. Underneath the veil aims to challenge the notion of modest wear by uncovering and redefining what goes beyond the Muslim woman's way of dress, particularly the hijab.
The six-look collection uncovers and rediscovers the different types of Islamic veils: the burqa, niqab and hijab. Basic veiling silhouettes are manipulated and redefined, changing the normality of how the veils are customarily worn. The use of unconventional fabrics that are not often seen in Islamic dressing further provokes the notion of it being daring and true to its wearer.
