Faith Fashion Fusion

Muslim Women’s Style in Australia

Faith Fashion Fusion

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.

A touring exhibition by the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney.

I'm looking forward to attending this. I'm quite uninformed about Muslim people.

The 3pm workshop today showed some awesome costumes! I enjoyed it very much. Please could someone tell me what the wedding song was at the end (singer, song title)? Thank you, Phoebe

Hi Phoebe,

The bridal segment featured two songs by the same artist, Maher Zain.

The first was "Baraka Allahu Lakuma" and the second was "For the rest of my life."

Both can be found on Youtube.

Hello, I came across this while surfing the net and was very curious as to what exactly this event is? Will their be women expressing their faith while dressing in the latest trends? More importantly is this a one day event or will it run for a period of time? Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Fatin,

Faith Fashion Fusion is an exhibition developed by the Powerhouse in Sydney. It will be on display at the Immigration Museum until the 9th of June, 2014. The exhibition highlights how Muslim women in Australia, informed by their faith, explore and develop their own contemporary fashion style. The exhibition includes stories about designers and examples of their designs; everything from formal and casual clothing, through to swim ware.

Visited today. Absolutely stunning! Highly recommended. Facebook your friends. A celebration of the creativity, colour, faith and style of both the Muslim designers whose creations are on show and the individual Muslim women featured who are contributing to our society in so many varied ways. I doubt you can be anything other than impressed by these articulate and stylish women.

My Australian born son Stefan studied fashion before he converted to Islam. 2yrs ago he passed away from leukaemia. He would be so happy to see that such an exhibition is on display in Melbourne.

Nice to see young Muslim women with style and individualism and not wearing dreary black covering their bodies and faces.
