Islamic fashion industry & Islamic Fashion Festival

Islamic fashion industry & Islamic Fashion Festival
The Islamic fashion industry has an approximate net worth of $96 billion globally; despite its infinite value, though, it remains an extremely controversial subject across the globe. Conservative Muslims feel that Islamic fashion exploits the faithful by influencing Islamic women to appreciate a Western aesthetic appeal, in large part because most styles are produced according to Western ideals of beauty. In contrast to the considerably more revealing Western trends, most Islamic legal systems (including the four major Islamic schools of thought: Hanafi, Shafi'i, Maliki and Hanbali) require women to cover not only their head, but their faces as well. This religious practice stems from the part of the Quran that says "the face of a woman is a source of corruption for men." The Hijab refers to both the head covering traditionally worn by Muslim women, and to the unassuming Muslim styles of dress in general.
