Tokyo holds its first fashion show for Muslim women

23.11.2016

Models wearing an array of colourful hijabs walked down a Tokyo catwalk on Tuesday in what organisers said was the first such fashion show for Muslim women in Japan.

Floral patterns were among the designs adorning long robe garments and matching headscarves at Japan's first "Muslimah Fashion Show", which is taking place as part of a two-day Halal Expo Japan event.

Around 10 brands, mainly from Singapore, were showcasing their creations at the Tokyo Modest Fashion Show.    (Reuters)
