Stefano Gabbana, of the fashion house Dolce & Gabbana, has revealed via Instagram that they will be offering a collection of stylish, lace-adorned and largely neutrally-toned hijabs and abayas. The collection ties into their Spring 2016 collection, with a sprinkling of elegant floral prints throughout its textiles and accessories.
While Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, who were a couple for nigh on a quarter of a century before breaking up in 2005, are helping make fashion history by introducing this breakthrough line of clothing, the former couple has had a bad reputation in the past among progressive circles for their comments on gay families and children.
Other well-know fashion brands have preceded D&G in testing out the Muslim high-end fashion market, as DKNY, Tommy Hilfiger and Oscar de le Renta have all offered clothing for Ramadan in Middle East markets.
