Behind the Scenes with Rabia Z

It seems like the media can't get enough of Rabia Z; I posted one such video here back in June 2008. But it's always fun to see what goes on behind the scenes! Don't mind the 30 second advert at the beginning, and a small pause before the feature:

I love the clothing and the fact that she is getting recognition. However, I don't like the way CBS covered the story. (No pun intended). Why is it every time the media decides to "recognize" a designer or some aspect of Islamic fashion it is portrayed as "new" or "breaking from tradition?" There are plenty of Muslimahs who never donned the black abaya, niqab or any colored abaya for that matter. And OF COURSE there is the implication that the dress of SOME women in Middle Eastern countries is representative of the dress for every Muslimah regardless of her ethnicity, location, culture or personal clothing tastes. (Yeah, they mentioned the stereotypes people have about Muslim women's dress but still...mention it and then fall back on it? lol).

Boo to CBS for the angle from which they approached the story.

Thanks for posting this link <3

and Carib Muslimah-- I SO agree about the CBS "whoa, look at these rebellious women" slant on that video. But I lold because they used the most UNcomfortable footage they could find of adjusting, tugging, and/or not enjoying abaya and niqab... which contrasted Rabia's designs, like "WOW, these are so easy to wear~ why doesn't every woman wear this?!" haha...

But truthfully, I love how comfortable Rabia herself looks in these. Wish her continued success :)
