The Muslim fashion house Haute Hijab launched their Fall 2011 Collection Tuesday, September 20, 2011. The line can be viewed online on their e-commerce website. The line focuses on modest clothing catered to Muslim women but is intended for all who admire impeccable design and modest options.
The line includes skirts, dresses and tops in fiercely unique and sophisticated designs. The clothing is inspired by vintage designs and womanly silhouettes of the 40âs and 50âs including a full skirt shirtdress, high-waisted volume skirt and crisp white blouses with a touch of frill.
Chief Designer Melanie Elturk says, âI am partial to sophisticated designs with an edge for confident women who love taking fashion risks. I scrutinized every stitch and seam and pushed each design to the limit using only the best fabrics.â The entire line was designed and manufactured in Chicago, Illinois.
âWe hope to affect mainstream fashion with our unique designs and sense of modesty,â says CMO Ahmed Zedan.
Originally established in early 2010, Haute Hijab launched their collection of vintage scarves in December, 2010. The vintage scarves were so popular they sold out in a matter of minutes and each collection was virtually sold out within a day.
The idea has become so popular that other copycat websites have popped up selling vintage scarves. Earlier this year, they expanded their collection to new hijabs (Islamic headscarf) and this summerâs must-have, the t-shirt dress available in four colors. Haute Hijab currently has over 7,000 fans on their Facebook page.
