Michael Kors has created a hijab for its Spring/Summer 2019 collection, but it’s not the first high-end fashion house to open its doors to Muslim culture and modest fashion.
Michael Kors has added a modest line to its collection
Michael Kors is the latest international brand to add a hijab to its collection. For SS19, the American fashion house created a regional capsule collection that features three pieces.
The feminine design sees white and olive floral patterns adorned onto black, lightweight fabric. Embracing the movement at large, Michael Kors’s capsule collection also features other modest designs.
But which other brands have added a hijab to their lines in recent years?
Dolce & Gabbana
In early 2016, D&G became more exclusive of Muslim culture by including a range of hijabs and abayas in its collection. The line included floral designs and monochrome patterns.
In 2016, Indonesian designer Anniesa Hasibuan made history during New York Fashion Week. Her runway show featured models wearing hijabs.
In 2018, the American department store and retailers announced it would launch its own line of hijabs. The store united with Verona Collection the create the modest line. The move come in support of World Hijab Day which takes place on February 1.
The sportswear brand tapped into the movement in 2017. While the campaign images were released the year before, the collection was actually available to buy in 2018.
Sporting hijabs had been on the market for several years, but the American brand was the first major international company to create a line.
Elsewhere, high street brands such as H&M, American Eagle and Mango have also increased their inclusivity.
