Are hijabs becoming a fashion statement?

The hijab has been called a lot of things. Up until now, none of those has been “fashion item.“  But designers have been adapting to the more modest needs of the young and growing Muslim fashion market, with H&M hiring a hijabi model, Dolce & Gabbana releasing a collection of hijabs and abayas and a host of labels including DKNY and Tommy Hilfiger producing special Ramadan clothing collections.

These business-savvy fusions of fashion and faith are intended to appeal to practicing Muslims, but they have caught the attention of those outside the religion. And that’s a complicated situation.
