Veiling in fashion: space and the hijab in minority communities

Veiling in fashion: space and the hijab in minority communities

Almila, Anna-Mari, author

Greater understanding is needed of veiling as fashion in the everyday lives of Muslim women in minority communities. 'Veiling in Fashion' enters the worlds of women who wear the hijab, both as an aspect of their religious observance and as a fashion statement. It uses rich ethnographic investigation of everyday veiling practices among Muslim women in the city of Helsinki as a lens through which to reflect on and advance understanding of matters concerning Muslim dress in the contexts of international Muslim minorities
