ISLAMIC DRESSES ECHO ELEGANCE OF ICONIC DESIGNER

New York’s Costume Institute will soon present Jacqueline de Ribes: The Art of Style at The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Anna Wintour Costume Center from November 19, 2015 through February 21, 2016.

Celebrating one of the most original fashion personas of the 20th century, the exhibition will feature 60 haute couture and ready-to-wear ensembles primarily from the personal archive of style icon Countess Jacqueline de Ribes. Dating from 1959 to the present, the display will include pieces by Giorgio Armani, Bill Blass, Ralph Lauren, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Yves Saint Laurent, and others such as Jacqueline de Ribes herself.

While Muslim fashionistas of today can appreciate the de Ribes style, most of them cannot don haute couture. Fortunately, there are online shops that carry similarly styled yet more affordably-priced modest dresses. See for yourself as we compare the Countess’s collection with the following Islamic ensembles from Artizara.

BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL

There’s scarcely a difference between the de Ribes velveteen gown with contrasting silk sleeves and Artizara’s timeless black maxi dress with iridescent chiffon overlay and straight sleeves in faux raw silk. The latter boasts a modest v-neckline and bodice bedecked with traditional hand embroidery by Palestinian women from a cooperative in Jenin. Each purchase of this heritage-rich abaya not only benefits the women economically but also helps preserve the ancient craft of these artisans!

Its lightweight iridescent chiffon is stitched into slimming inverted pleats at the bodice to release into a full flowing and flattering skirt. Best of all, the body is lined in poly to give you both vibrant color and full opacity!
