«Cultural and religious reasons may have birthed modest fashion, but today the aesthetic has gone to a whole new stylish place, turning the heads of a young generation of cosmopolitan, social media-savvy consumers».
– Vogue UK

«Fashion reflects the world around it, and women who dress modestly are highly visible both on the streets of modern cities and in media imagery».
– The Guardian

«This is how the term ‘modest wear’ came into being. DKNY, Uniqlo, H&M, Dolce & Gabbana, Oscar de la Renta, Tommy Hilfiger, Mango, Monique Lhuillier and a lot of other prominent fashion houses and brands joined the game to contend for the Muslim market».
