Dolce & Gabbana made a splash this week when the brand announced it would be releasing a new collection of hijabs and abayas. While many are ecstatic about the strategic move by the luxury fashion house, others are wary of the motivations behind the line:
Is it a pure money grab? After all, sources report that Muslim women are expected to spend $484 billion on clothing and shoes by 2019. Some in particular see this as a clear move to tap into that lucrative market and voice concerns that the line is clearly targeted toward a very small but wealthy segment of Muslim women in the Gulf. Others stress the need to support the smaller, Muslim-owned businesses in the industry. As the CEO and chief designer of Haute Hijab , an online retailer for modest fashion, I’m here to aid with this request. Ahead, shop 10 hijabs and scarves—all under $55—made by Muslim women, for Muslim women.
Here you go:
