Dolce & Gabbana launches collection for Muslim women

Dolce & Gabbana launches collection for Muslim women

Dolce & Gabbana has launched a new collection, consisting of hijabs (headscarves) and abayas (dresses), focused entirely on Muslim women. With this collection, the fashion company follows the trend of creating fashionable items for Muslim women.

Growing market

Last year, Stefano Gabbana already mentioned the arrival of this new collection in an interview with The National. "The Middle East fascinates me and we will launch a ready-to-wear collection with abayas and sheylas", he said in July 2015. "A few items will have lace, embroidery and several, not too many, will have prints."

 

Dolce & Gabbana is not the first fashion brand that chooses to develop fashion for the Muslim woman, a largely untapped market, although an increasing number of brands see a future of growth in the region. H&M and Uniqlo, among others, have already developed clothing for the Muslim woman, while Chanel also has a collection that tries to fulfill the needs and requirements of the Islamic world.
