Abstract

"Modest Fashion: Styling Bodies, Mediating Faith." Reina Lewis (ed.). I.B. Tauris. May 2013. --- In Modest Fashion, scholars and journalists discuss the emergence of a niche market for modest fashion among and between Jewish, Christian and Muslim faith groups as well as secular dressers. Crossing creeds and cultures, analysing commentary alongside commerce, the book aims to explore the personal and the political as well as religious, aesthetic and economic implications of contemporary dress practices and the debates that surround them. Reviewed by Tina Basi.
