Rym Beydoun’s Experimental #Modesty

Rym Beydoun’s Central Saint Martin’s graduate collection presented fresh looks for the conservative party-girl. Here’s what she told us about her collection:

“Combining fashion and Islam has been really challenging especially since appeal is strongly linked with showing skin. I tried to show that modesty can be as appealing as nudity. The concept behind the collection was to push the traditional and religious limits of the veil in adapting it into a modern society. Being a Muslim myself with friends and family wearing the veil, I wanted to create something that would make muslim women more comfortable, confident and fashionable while still maintaining their religious identity and values. I aimed to change the scarf garment from its common conception to an empowering tool for women.”
