Salaam Alaykum Sister, Hope you are well. I read in one of your posts that you are interested in Fashion Design/Promotion and communication. Are you still interested in it? do you have a background in fashion ? I am in Toronto, Canada - where are you based? Inshallah, my aim is to open my own modest clothing online store. :) I don't know if you would be interested! Looking forward to hearing from you soon, Ma'salaam,
So I'm new to this and have stumbled across this website while google searching whether Fashion is haraam. Fashion has always bee something I liked, but I'm pulled between either fashion design or fashion promotion and communication (so using media and other mediums to advertise fashion more or less). And I'd researched all of this years back, an learned that it was okay as long as I was designing and creating modest clothing. But then last night I was listening to a lecture and this scholar/speaker was saying that abayas shouldn't be over embellished or different colours like green. And I was thinking whether this is actually true (like its written in the Quran or in a Hadith) or whether this was his opinion. And not just abaya but other clothing, like should it all be plain and have no embellishments but obviously loose fitting?
