Hijab - Shanaaz Copeland, Collingwood Football Club Design, 2010 Object Reg. No: HT 26773

Black and white hijab with Collingwood Football Club logo, made by Shanaaz Copeland of Yazes Design in 2010. She has patented her design as it allows for a great range of flexibility in style in the one hijab, reflecting the variety of ways of wearing a hijab and the styles and tastes of Muslim women. Her company is based in the Melbourne suburb of Brunswick. Shanaaz has created hijabs in St Kilda, Essedon, Collingwood, Hawthorn and Port Adelaide colours.

The hijab is a head covering traditionally worn by Muslim women. There are differing opinions in Islam as to whether the hijab is a requirement or not and there are different styles depending on a person's belief, cultural background, fashion sense and personality.
Black hijab made from lycra material with a black and white striped band around the head, neckline and at the bottom edge of the hijab. It represents the colours of the Collingwood AFL team. On the chestpiece is an iron-on Collingwood Football Club Logo of a black and white magpie, the Australian and black and white flags.
