Top 14 Modest Fashion Designers From Around The World

Top Modest Fashion Designers. Modest fashion, designers, influencers, and bloggers aim to bust the myth that dressing modestly is synonymous with dull, uninspired, and monotonous clothing. Cultural, social, and religious diversity results in different opinions from all over the world. 

Because of this diversity, the term “modest fashion” is defined differently by different societies. One women’s perception or idea of a modest outfit might differ a lot from another one’s.


The Best Modest Fashion Designer Brands

Modest fashion has found its footing in the modern fashion scene thanks to brands like H&M, Dolce & Gabbana, and Uniqlo releasing collections that cater to people interested in this trend, not to mention the kickstarting of Modest Fashion Weeks in cities like London, Singapore, and Istanbul. The term ‘modest fashion’ is being tossed around a lot; lately, the reason being a tremendous increase in popularity in recent times, which had been on the rise since the mid-2000s. The global ‘modest fashion’ market is growing and is reportedly worth billions of dollars already thanks to many modest social media influencers and bloggers.

What is Modest Fashion?

There is no exact and unambiguous definition of modest fashion as women all over the world have a different idea depending on their culture, religion, and personal preferences but a couple of things are widely recognized:

  1. The term refers to loose-fitted clothes, showing as little skin as possible, comfortable according to the person’s preferences. Things like oversized silhouettes—like super-wide trousers or statement sleeves.
  2. Modest fashion, while growing primarily from and within Abrahamic faiths (Judaism, Christianity, Islam), isn’t restricted to religion. It is interesting to note that many non-religious women are a part of this burgeoning trend.

Brand Name: Haute Hijab

About the Designer:

Haute Hijab was founded by Melanie Elturk and husband Ahmed Zedan in 2010. As a Muslim-American, Melanie recalls her difficulty in obtaining hijabs that were suited to her style and weather. The lack of diversity, representation, and confidence in their identities had lead to Muslim women’s decline in the use of hijabs. Melanie sought to fix that and started by modifying ready-made scarves from vintage stores and selling them as hijabs online. The brand’s primary objective is to prove that hijabs and being American are not mutually exclusive. Haute Hijab provides a wide variety of hijabs, depending on fabric and occasion.
