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.

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.
