Muslim fashion_AMES imageMelbourne’s Immigration Museum is host to a stunning new exhibition which showcases fashion created by or for Australian Muslim women.

Titled ‘Faith, Fashion, Fusion, Muslim women’s style in Australia’, the exhibition explores an emerging fashion market and the work of a new generation of fashion designers, retailers and bloggers offering stylish clothing and fashion advice to Muslim women.

Muslim women in Australia dress in diverse styles and are increasingly choosing to engage with global fashion trends while also expressing their faith.

Muslim identity is 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.

The exhibition runs from October 10 until June 9, 2014. Opening hours are 10am to 5pm.
