Jilbab Jilbabs Silk Route Clothing

Jilbab Jilbabs Silk Route Clothing

Jilbab Jilbabs Silk Route Clothing - The purpose of the ancient 'Silk Route', which connected the emerging Western cultures with the thriving Eastern traditions, is now being revived through the exciting new Women's clothing brand.

The Silk Route Brand was born with today's Muslimah in mind: The Muslimah who interacts with and enriches the diverse communities she lives in. Sisters wanting to convey their faith and identity through a stylish and contemporary look will find that the Silk Route Jilbab reaches beyond all expectations.

Silk Route has designs appealing to those seeking a simple yet sophisticated look and to those who love to express their uniqueness through empowering design concepts. Silk Route's vibrant mix of urban, sporty, casual and elegant Jilbabs is always ready to dress the modern Muslimah in confidence.

Silk Route Abaya & Jilbab


A classic oriental fashion inspired Jilbab with a contemporary and youthful twist. Both dignified and casual with a mix of details such as a diagonal neck opening with a jersey piping.

Puff sleeves attached with jersey create a layered and stylized look. An attention to detail such as hand crafted fabric buttons on neck and side slits complement and enhance the impact of the design.

Âlâ, a new fashion magazine in Turkey, is empowering Muslim women to dress stylishly from headscarf to pointy-toed flats. The magazine, which has been compared to Vogue and other prominent fashion publications, covers health, psychology , marriage, engagements and the law without the sensational and sexual connotations of the others. Its readers are mostly educated females whose families have climbed the social ladder after migrating to the cities, so it’s not surprising that many of these women are embracing the magazine’s message that “you can wear a headscarf and still belong to the jetset.”

With more than 100,00 followers on Facebook it seems that Âlâ has proved to be an outlet for Muslim women who have longed to be heard and seen as beautiful and worthy of attention. The magazine’s glossy cover and couture looks ultimately appeal to any woman who indulges in fashion and is curious about cultural trends. It also offers a platform for women to feel comfortable about dressing modestly where it’s less about the body and more about the clothes.

Controversy over whether or not fashion and Islam can comfortably coexist still remains, as many traditional Muslims believe women on display in any fashion is a violation of Islamic principles.

Regardless of these sentiments, it appears that Âlâ is here to stay. And with Turkey’s growing number of observant Muslims, the magazine is in a position to set future fashion trends and continually influence an emerging culture of women who are ready to be comfortable and chic in their own skin.
