Islamic Fashion Festival 2015 in Cannes

The Islamic Fashion Festival that originated in Malaysia, took place in Cannes,  France last week. It was aimed at showing people how valuable the Muslim market is when it comes to high end luxury. However, it appears there isn’t much about it online.

According to the Source Journal “Cannes will host the Islamic Fashion Festival (IFF) from the Intercontinental Carlton Hotel this Friday May 22. Dubbed ”Lawrence of Arabia on the French Riviera” the event will boast 28 looks from seven different designers hailing from Kuala Lumpur, London, Paris and Jakarta. The event hopes to lift the profile of luxury fashion in the Islamic market. According to Thomson Reuters and the Dinard Standard, the global Islamic fashion and accessories market should reach $484bn dollars by 2019.”

With all the drama surrounding hijab in France, it’s quite ironic they hosted a show like this there.

What do you think? If people realize how much the market is worth, will they stop giving hijabis such a hard time?

    Wow, Omg, Miriam that’s so gross. Carly, I agree with you, i have had really good luck with Marshalls- a TJ Maxx partner. I only bbubuy seamless full figure bras that are nude in color with a little padding for extra protection. I know that’s a little too my information, but being as picky as I still have luck there. Olga makes really nice full figure bras, too. Shopping us so much fun when kids are in school. Happy shopping 🙂
