The Islamic fashion market is set to be worth $327bn by 2020. This year alone we saw Istanbul host the first Modest Fashion Week; Uniqlo, D&G and DKNY release Ramadan capsule collections; and $230bn spent by Muslim consumers on clothing worldwide. But how Islamic is the business of modest fashion? Are mainstream brands or Muslim start-ups the future of the industry? And how is the world of internet retail, bloggers and magazine changing the way Muslims shop?
The Islamic Finance and Ethics Society invites you to the LSE for a night of fashion with a panel discussion from industry experts as well and pop-up stores from the most up-and-coming designers on the scene.
