Yeah, usually when I think of Arabic fashion, I think of burkas https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burqa

Sorry for being mislead...


I don't think i've ever seen one person wear a Burqa actually, but they could be classes as part of fashion or cultural dress.


I don't think people realize that their's so much diversity in muslim culture. It would be foolish to think over 20% of the world dresses exactly the same. One of my college classmates who was from Saudi Arabia wore a head scarf and dressed modestly everyday, but she was definitely big into fashion. I went to school in Manhattan and she was referred to by nearly everyone as pretty and stylish.


Probably until she went back home to Saudi Arabia, and then she got back into her Burqa...



Yet she lived in New York City by herself while attending school and choose to dress modestly....Its people like you who choose to be willfully ignorant.

Nah. Her people, and the hard-liners who choose what facade to present to the world, are the ones who decide how the rest of the world perceives them. She is in the minority. The hard-liner Imams, and the hate-filled terrorists - that kill their own neighborhood children at their own schools in bombings and massacres are the ones who decide how the rest of the world perceives them.

The terrorist leaders threaten their own people, and the Imams seemingly supports the terrorist's views. They are the ones calling the shots. When the Muslim world can break the chains of that enslavement, then they will truly be free.

Until then, we can be assured that an edict from an Imam can crush that girl's only freedom to dress like a Lolita... Someone said, in this discussion, that it was permitted under certain rules, but it is possible that another Imam somewhere might decide to take a hard-line view on the matter and say that she can't dress that way anymore.

What will she do then? If she rebels, she'll be in a lot of trouble. If she complies, then wouldn't that mean that her freedom to express herself through dress has been crushed by a ruthless dogma?

The minority are those who are the hard-asses and strict about what to wear or not. Terrorists are not part of Islam, ask any Muslim that. It's a guise to try and justify the horrors they commit everyday. Don't associate a peaceful religion with some terrible people, or a country's hard culture. Culture and religion are separate, they are not one in the same. Hijabs and burkas are not even a "must", they are presented as an option for women if they choose to wear it. If a country has strict laws, like in that of Saudi Arabia, that is culture and not the Islamic faith. It is upsetting to see how much Islam is criticised under false information.

On topic for the thread, the girls look absolutely adorable. I'd love to see more diversity in fashion.

Not the first time something like this has occurred and it will certainly not be the last.


Nice to see people doing something they like.

It doesn't look right to me.

It's like seeing someone wearing socks and sandals... It's weird and mismatched.
