'This new book by Jill D Alessandro and Reina Lewis explores cutting-edge Muslim style a meeting point of trends, self-expression and religious belief' - High Life Magazine

An exploration of contemporary Muslim modest dress, from historic styles to present-day examples, the companion book for an exhibition at the de Young.

Filled with documentary and fashion photography as well as stills from runway shows and the media, this book explores the ways Muslim style cultures are shaped by global trends and religious beliefs. From high-end couture to street-wear, this volume shows how established and diaspora regions, such as Dubai, Jakarta, London, and New York, are homes to thriving industries that create classic and cutting-edge looks.

Accompanying these images are essays and personal narratives by leading voices that touch on everything from the history of modest dress to social media. A fascinating examination of a major segment of the fashion industry, this book highlights the ingenuity and creativity of Muslim designers and wearers as they deftly navigate the fashion industry while maintaining their religious and cultural identities.
