Dubai is known for its largest, tallest, biggest; so why not organizing a large, a tall and a big Modest Fashion Week over there? Previously, we enjoyed the London and Istanbul Modest Fashion Week, and after these two successes, Modest Fashion Week is coming to the sparkling and dazzling city: Dubai. This great event will be held on December 8th & 9th, 2017 in one of the highest-traffic and prestigious venue, the Burj Park – Downtown Dubai.
Hijabi supermodel Halima Aden, influencer Nabiilabee, UK model Mariah Idrissi, Habiba da Silva and several world-class designers, fashion influencers and associations will fly to Dubai for this impressive show.

Moreover, the term Modest Fashion has become known by the famous Modest Fashion Weeks. The trending event started its journey in May 2016 under the name of Istanbul Modest Fashion Week, which was closely followed by London Modest Fashion Week in April 2017. Visitors from 30 countries, among them world-class designers, brands, fashion influencers, professionals, retailers and fashion associations, attended the event. Supermodel Halima Aden and Dina Tokio, the modest fashion phenomenon, were one of the special guests.
Franka Soeria said, “Modest Fashion has its own talents, stars, market and capital cities- this is the reason why we create Modest Fashion Week, to show the authentic modest fashion industry with the best possible way. After Istanbul and London, we consider Dubai as one of the most important cities for modest fashion especially in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) area. This event is all about empowerment and collaboration- all in the name of Modest Fashion”.
