Fashioning Faith

“Fashioning Faith” is a fantastic film by Yasmin Moll, a PhD student in Sociocultural Anthropology at NYU, about young Muslim women redefining what it means to be Muslim in contemporary America, and features several American Muslimah fashion designers:

Thank you so much Jana for keeping up-to-date about what is happening with Muslim Womwn around the world.
I was so impressed with the Video by Yasmin Moll ''Fashining Faith''. It is amazing how muslim women are finally waking up to the fact that there is a need to portray educated muslim women in a positive way. Also, it is nice to see that some sisters are trying hard to cater to their other sisters who choose to either cover up or just dress up modestly. I love it and I would love to find a website where I can order evening wear. The ones we find in the stores are too revealing and need a lot of work before you can make them work for you and your style. Thanks again and keep up the good work. I have posted other comments on your website but I don't seem to succeed in doing so. Let's see if it will work this time. Assalamoalaikom.

First, thank you for this vid! Seriously! I'll definitely recommend watching this vid to some people.

It's refreshing to see that sisters everywhere are slowly but surely showing the rest of the world that wearing a veil is definitely not an obstacle to being fashionable and looking good. Personally, I never enjoyed dressing up as much as when I started wearing the veil.

Sooner or later inshallah, people will start realizing that the veil is a symbol and a piece of fabric, not an attempt to hinder women's intellect.

Anyway, thank you for this post! ^_^
