There was a time when relatives and friends would advise aspiring artists and designers to choose another career. There was this old way thinking that an artist or a designer cannot enjoy the freedom of expressing their artistry and creativity without having to sacrifice their financial future.

Many successful artists and designers have long ago proven to the world that creativity pays, that they can freely create as they wish, at the same ensuring a bright future for them and their families. In fact, these successful artists have become so creative they even venture into what may appear as unknown or forbidden to others.

What, you may ask, can be unknown or possibly forbidden for an artist? For sure, there are many areas where ordinary artists will not dare embark upon. Societies and cultures, for instance, have a way of limiting an artist’s creativity.

Think of the Hijab for example. Many years ago, would you have the audacity, as an artist or a fashion designer, to even think of creating designs for wear a Hijab, an Abaya, a Burka or Burqa and a Kaftan or Caftan or Kaftan dress?

Better Understand Before You Venture into the Hijab World of Fashion

There was also a time when people look differently at a Hijab, an Abaya, a Burka or Burqa and a Kaftan or Caftan or Kaftan dress. While many accept that a Hijab, an Abaya, a Burka or Burqa and a Kaftan or Caftan or Kaftan dress are part of tradition, there are those who do not fully understand what these pieces of clothing truly mean.

A Hijab, an Abaya, a Burka or Burqa and a Kaftan or Caftan or Kaftan dress means so much more than just wardrobe. Muslim women wear a Hijab, an Abaya, a Burka or Burqa and a Kaftan or Caftan or Kaftan dress as a testament to their Islamic belief that:

  • Morality is important to their faith. Therefore, as believers, they should also put significance to morality. While there are other ways of demonstrating that they adhere to the moral principles of their culture, wearing a Hijab, an Abaya, a Burka or Burqa and a Kaftan or Caftan or Kaftan dress symbolizes how they respect and obey the tenets of what they believe in.
  • Modesty is not something they should be ashamed of. In their culture, a Muslim woman is required to wear a Hijab, an Abaya, a Burka or Burqa and a Kaftan or Caftan or Kaftan dress as evidence that discretion and restraint is important to them as women. To them, being careful about how they dress in public, is something to be proud of.
  • Privacy is another basic principle that they choose to espouse. It is a way of dealing with the atrocities of this world. It is how they, as Muslim women, show that they respect their bodies and that men must look at their value as a person before anything else.
A True Artist Respects Tradition

An artist who sees the a Hijab, an Abaya, a Burka or Burqa and a Kaftan or Caftan or Kaftan dress as purely part of a tradition that prohibits freedom of choice will have difficulty breaking into the Hijab world of fashion.

It is true that an artist need freedom to be creative. On the other hand, isn’t it more challenging to create beautiful pieces of a Hijab, an Abaya, a Burka or Burqa and a Kaftan or Caftan or Kaftan dress within the limits of tradition? Thanks to artists who think this way, Muslim women now has the luxury of both tradition and fashion.
