Muslim women are not known for is fashion -- at least outdoors, and hijabbed Muslim women throng to Rodeo Drive to buy the latest fashions, but they only wear them indoors for their husbands and female friends. So fashion among Muslim women is something entirely private and out of sight -- just the opposite of the fashion ethos. Articles like this one are designed to try to make Americans more comfortable with Islam's oppression of women, forcing them to wear cloth coffins in public.
This is a concerted, conscious, planned effort to to normalize and make us comfortable with Islam and its oppression of women.
Who else do they do this for? Hindus? Jews .....?
Muslim women show flair for their style of fashion Associated [with terrorist]PressDALLAS (AP) — At a sleek venue in Dallas' Design District, Ndaa Hassan burst through the curtain and rushed backstage. The fashion show was about to start. She was a flurry of nerves, wrapped in light pink from head to toe. "Ladies, it's a full house!" she shouted.
The 30 or so models wore vibrant eye shadow, bejeweled dresses and high heels. But in this case, the stilettos didn't lead up to bare, twiggy legs. In fact, they led no further than the hems of loose-fitting dresses that revealed almost no skin.
This was fashion, all right, but with a Muslim influence.
Hassan and her friend Zeena Alkurdi were presenting their first fashion show to about 150 people, spotlighting stylish but modest clothing — including some of their own designs. As entrepreneurs, Hassan and Alkurdi, both 22, design and sew hijabs whose chic styles range from tie-dye and sequins to cheetah print and vintage floral.
Each has launched an online boutique to bridge the gap between the Middle Eastern traditions of their parents and the American culture they grew up in. A stylish hijab, they say, empowers Muslim girls to feel more confident and find common ground with non-Muslim peers.
This story resonates with Muslim women. Wearing the hjiab as part of their faith makes them feel empowered, proud and beautiful. Alkurdi says the best compliment she can get is when she's wearing a hijab. For "hijabis," the scarf is not just an item of clothing; it connects them with God and reminds them who they are. They wear the hijab every day. Only other women and male family members can see them without the scarf.
"It might be an accessory and clothing, but it is a way of life," Hassan said. "With the hijab on, we're always representing our religion, and it forces us to be on our best behavior."
Ten years ago, after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Alkurdi's father asked her if she wanted to take a break from wearing the hijab. She broke down in tears. "This is a part of me," she said. "I can't take it off."
