Cultural Expression

Cultural Expression

From Nike’s first professional sports hijab, to a veil made up of stars and stripes as a symbol of political protest, the interaction of faith, culture, fashion and individual expression is examined in Contemporary Muslim Fashions, a world-first exhibition. It traverses interpretations of religious dress codes from high-end fashion, street wear and commissioned couture in order to consider how Muslims express themselves through dress.

On view at De Young, San Francisco, until 6 January. Find out more here.
