Veiling in Fashion : Space and the Hijab in Minority Communities, Hardback Book

Veiling in Fashion : Space and the Hijab in Minority Communities Hardback

Part of the Dress Cultures series


Veiling in Fashion enters the worlds of women who wear the hijab, both as an aspect of their religious observance and community belonging, and as a fashion statement, drawing upon global Islamic fashion history.

The book 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 international Muslim minority contexts. The book provides an innovative approach to studying veiling by connecting varied realms of practice, demonstrating how domains as apparently separate as fashion, materiality, city spaces, private life, religious beliefs, and cosmopolitan social conditions are all tightly bound up together in ways that only a sensitive multi-disciplinary approach can reveal.

It will appeal to scholars and students in fashion, gender, religion, material cultures, and the construction of space.
