The US Is Officially Getting Their First Ever Modest Fashion Week
The 3 day event is founded by a Malaysian immigrant who wishes to see “creativity, diversity and authenticity” in American fashion.
Following in the footsteps of Abu Dhabi, Istanbul and Milan Fashion Week, the US is finally getting their first ever dedicated modest fashion week.
Kicking off on November 30th as part of Art Basel 2019 at the Intercontinental Hotel Miami, Miami Modest Fashion Week will bring together brands, retailers, influencers and models “to unite the industry’s best talents in the most dynamic strategy which will translate into stronger shows for designers, buyers and brands in the modest fashion industry for future generations”, explained the organizers of the event.
The 3 day event was founded by Norsham Mohamad-Garcia, an immigrant who was born and raised in a small village in Malaysia and has called Miami her home for the last 13 years.
“I believe that Modest-style Fashion Week will cause a wow effect and will resonate with many”, Norsham tells Riamoda. “I am very proud of this project. We believe in education, creativity, diversity and authenticity, the future. In America, there are a lot of mass markets, behind which one’s identity is lost. Modest designers are very creative and they create unique clothes. And Americans are very fond of original clothes. Also, the thirst for exclusivity is a big plus for modest designers.”
Miami Modest Fashion Week is running from 30th November to 2nd December.
