The First-Ever Modest Fashion Week In The US Is Coming Up

Modest fashion has been gaining momentum the world over and will now take center stage in Miami, which will play host to the first-ever dedicated modest fashion week in the United States.

Miami Modest Fashion Week is slated to take place on 30 November during Art Basel 2019 . The idea is to bring together diverse and creative designers, brands and buyers, and unite “the industry’s best talents in the most dynamic strategy, which will translate into stronger shows…,” according to the organizers.

In an Instagram post, Malaysian-born Norsham Mohamad Garcia, the founder of the event, said, “When I started creating Miami Modest Fashion Week, many people from different cultures and religions told me, ‘We waited for this because we lived in a bikini for too long.’ Therefore, I believe that Modest-style Fashion Week will cause a wow effect and will resonate with many.”

She added, ” I am very proud of this project. We believe in education, creativity, diversity and authenticity, the future. In America, there are a lot of mass markets, behind which identity is lost. Modest designers are very creative and create unique clothes. Americans are very fond of original clothes, the thirst for exclusivity is a big plus for modest designers.”

Don’t miss Miami Modest Fashion Week, which will run from 30 November until 2 December at Intercontinental Hotel Miami.
