Faith Fashion Fusion

A touring exhibition by The Powerhouse Museum at The Immigration Museum Melbourne

I guess by now it’s becoming obvious that I love an exhibition, particularly if it’s about clothing, image or identity. But this is a topic I’ve been interested in learning more about for a while and so I’m thrilled to hear of it showing in Melbourne.

From the Immigration Museum‘s website:

An exhibition exploring fashion, faith and Muslim identity.

Australian Muslim women dress in diverse styles and are increasingly choosing to engage with global fashion trends while also expressing their faith. Faith, fashion, fusion explores an emerging modest fashion market and the work of a new generation of fashion designers, retailers and bloggers offering stylish clothing and fashion advice to Muslim women.

Faith, fashion and Muslim identity are further explored in the exhibition through the experiences and achievements of a group of Australian Muslim women. Their stories reflect on the diversity of the Muslim community and the importance of the Muslim faith in all aspects of their lives.

For a great taster of the exhibition watch the clip below from the ABC news team. There are some terrific insights and beautiful looks.
