In recent times, Islamic fashion festivals have been organized by different Muslim communities in different parts of the world such as the Islamic Fashion in Dubai by Chechenya’s first lady, Medni Kadyrova. In that fashion festival, more than 20 veiled Chechen models took part. They were dressed in silk and beautifully embroidered muslin dresses fully covering their body from head to toe. “My designs are inspired by natural beauty and the grace of Arab women, to whom I dedicate my collection,” Kadyrova said. These clothes are “to lead Chechen women towards a new way of life, full of harmony and serenity, based on the national Islamic traditions.”
Everyone knows that not only Islamic women but non-Islamic women are also increasingly showing interest to the Islamic traditions.
