From the Cooper Hewitt website: 


Contemporary Muslim Fashions examines how Muslim women—those who cover their heads and those who do not—have become arbiters of style within and beyond their communities. As designers and entrepreneurs, they have shown that clothing can be on-trend and still meet the needs of diverse wearers. As consumers, they have used their influence to shape global fashion markets. And as journalists, bloggers, and influencers, they have confronted a lack of representation in the mainstream fashion narrative and drawn international attention to the vitality of Muslim modest style.


I attended this exhibition when it debuted at the deYoung Museum in San Francisco and published an exhibition review in the Canadian scholarly journal Fashion Studies, read it here

This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone on the East coast to get a glimpse into the world of Modest Fashion. The exhibition is on now through to Sunday August 23, 2020. 

The Cooper Hewitt has included a series of videos by modest fashion designers and influencers on their Instagram page, check that out here
