Dubai Modest Fashion Week 2021
As many know the Modest Fashion Industry is growing day by day. It is currently worth over $400 billion. Modest fashion as a market term emerged in the early 2000’s with a number of brands and creative entrepreneurs who themselves were motivated to enter this market.
With nearly 2 Billion Muslims spread across the globe, each culture has different backgrounds when it comes to dressing, different interpretations of modesty, from covering the entire face and body to simply wearing loose-fitting clothes. Thus, an enormous amount of creativity is needed, to be able to cater for each culture and for the woman to be able to express herself.
Founded by Turkish Duo Ozlem Sahin and Kubra Aksan, Think Fashion is a modest wear consultancy and events company. Their events include everything from fashion shows to panel discussions and special exhibitions.
Sahin represents herself as a serial global fashion entrepreneur. Being co-founder of Think Fashion, co-founder of global Modest Fashion Weeks (Istanbul-London-Dubai Jakarta) travelling event series, she is also and investor and partner in some fashion focused global start-ups.
Now it is time to see fashion with a different eye. Fashion is not just for a certain type of women. It is time to think sustainable and ethical both in creating and consuming. Which is why this years Modest Fashion Weeks theme was Awakening for those who are ready for a fashion revolution.
