    The beauty lies in Hijab (meaning Cover) for both Men & Women. Thank you Islam for introducing this concept to me. In the words of Nobel winner Tawakul Kamran:

    “Man in the early times was almost naked, and as his intellect evolved he started wearing clothes. What I am today and what I am wearing represents the highest level of thought and civilization that man has achieved, and is not regressive. It is the removal of clothes again that is regressive back to ancient times”

    @Sidra:
    Interesting quote by Ms. Kamran, but honestly, there are tons of options between nudity and dressing up in tent-like clothes which are restrictive to the point of self-negation. Are there not?
    I would also like your opinion on this: Afghan women

    @Mj:

    There are truly tons of options and Tawakal Kamran was not referring to the negativity that you have tried to put here.
    As for the tent-like clothes, it is neither compulsory nor recommended in Islam. If you had taken time to study about how it is really that Islam asks for both men & women to dress up and why is it so, you probably would not have picked and chosen stuff here. Learn before you make up your opinion, that would be the best opinion.

    . these people are illiterate praising any covered dress. come to pakistan fashion week and we will show you how to dress , how to wear cloths without duppta, how to wear sleeveless. if you wear a cloth and if does not make your body figure prominent that would be crap cloths ..

    Beautiful cloths for outdoor usage, especially for working women. Anyhow, I don’t like the last slide.Islam teach peace.A provocative dress could not be adapted in countries where complete security to honour is not ensured(for those who don’t believe in Islamic culture).Recommend

    With so much black and dark colours in the photos, it is probably the intention of the exhibitors to demonstrate the pathetic grim mood under which the young Iranian generation is suffering.

    The Iranian diaspora in Europe refer themselves as the Asian-Europeans. It is almost impossible to distinguish between Iranian, Italian or Spanish women on the roads, because of their fair complexions and modern European outfit.

    And they are totally alienated from the religion of their Ayatollahs.
