Looks from Dubai Modest Fashion Week - in pictures 

Following in the footsteps of Istanbul and London, the UAE played host to the third-ever Modest Fashion Week

Following in the footsteps of Istanbul and London, the UAE played host to the third-ever Modest Fashion Week on December 8 and 9, at Burj Park in Dubai. Founders Franka Soeria and Özlem Sahin told The National: “After we did Istanbul, many cities asked us to come and show. So we did London and that went really well. We get contacted by a lot of countries but with some there is a big challenge to try and explain modest women. And then we thought about the Middle East and we realised that Dubai is one of the most recognised cities. It is the perfect area; it is international, open and it shares our view that modesty is a choice, so we don’t have to work hard to explain what we are trying to do." Read the full interview here.
