Modest fashion is taking the world by storm. And this can be a good or a bad thing. On the one hand you have the feeling of liberation and empowerment. Modest fashion gives us the freedom to say “I can dress how I want and be beautiful doing it”. On the flip side, there are those who continue to play the oppression card – where women in hijabs are nothing more than following an oppressed, backward view of fashion and beauty. Add to that, you have the conservatives among our o

In today’s political climate, it’s not uncommon to turn the page of a newspaper and see the words Islam and terrorist in the same sentence. Muslim women get targeted for wearing the hijab. We get marginalized, we get called oppressed, uneducated, seen as less achieved and so many other labels we care not to mention. But in the same breath, the hijab and our modest fashion is slowly (but surely) being taken over by the same group of people who have thrown those labels on us. M
A month has gone in 2017 and so much has been going around globally. It's a rough time but if we stand united, we can rise above.
In this issue, we do just that by shining a light on what unites us rather than what divides us. This month we speak to MOGA Scarves, a Melbourne based label that made waves when they sent one of their scarves to Australia's One Nation Senator, Pauline Hanson, who has been noted for her hateful rhetoric on her campaign trail. We also look into h

An extra piece of cloth, an extra inch of material, a little extra coverage, doesn’t change the fact that Muslim women are normal women too. And just like every woman, we want to dress up, make up and feel beautiful too. Perfect point to start playing “I’m every woman” by Whitney Houston.

The need to cover up with a hijab is a something that every Muslim woman has to consider in their fashion choices. Yet, when you’re also a mother, there are so many more things to take into account. How do you achieve a look that’s still stylish, protects your modesty and is comfortable enough to survive the busy lifestyle that a mother has? It may seem daunting at first but, as Mandela once said, “everything seems impossible until it’s done”. Think you can’t get the right hi
Three years ago if you mentioned “modest fashion” you’d be met with a puzzled look. It wasn’t really the in-thing. Yet, it is something we Muslim women deal with every day. Longer sleeves, longer hemlines, hijab, that was modest fashion. But to the rest of the world, it was somewhat oppressive or here in humid Singapore, we’d be met with the question “Do you not feel hot with all those layers?” We would laugh then. But now turn every corner or better yet, swipe across Instagr

The world is changing - weather is getting erratic, politics are running like a reality show, currency is taking a dip and the global population is making a turn - towards Islam. From media to marketing, Islam or Muslims are the in thing - sometimes good, sometimes bad. As we all know, the fastest growing religion in the world is Islam, the most unrepresented and misunderstood religion is also Islam. That is the sad reality. But it doesn’t have to be that way and many of us -

Noor Tagouri in Playboy. Photo from Instagram @ntagouri. The online Muslim chatter are abuzz in the wake of Noor Tagouri's interview with Playboy. When it first came out, we were delighted. The choice of media didn't really concern us. In fact, it didn't even shock us. We were just delighted that a mainstream media interviewed the well respected Noor Tagouri, an American-Muslim hijabi journalist. We have always admired her and this interview in Playboy didn't even make us go
Three years ago, when we started GAYA, the modest fashion industry was still in its infancy. Yes there were several Muslim/Modest fashion designers, labels and bloggers but the understanding of modest fashion was mainly confined within our own Muslim community. The term "modest fashion" hadn't penetrated the mainstream market. Perhaps (and not surprisingly) it was seen as "Islamic" and only targeted to hijabis. And obviously this didn't sit well with many in mainstream fashio
