In pictures: 10 modest-wear looks from Jakarta Modest Fashion Week

There has been a global fashion shift away from tight and revealing clothes to looser, more comfortable options. The idea behind this relaxed silhouette was born from the desire to offer women greater choice when it comes to dressing.

Kerim Ture, co-founder of modest fashion portal Modanisa, spoke to us about the universal appeal of conservative clothing. Read the full interview here.
