Summary: A travelling show that highlights Muslim fashion recently opened at the National Archives in Canberra, Australia.

The traveling exhibition displays local designs that are both modest and fashion-forward.
In Australia, designers recently began to market towards Muslim women, as Muslim fashion is a growing global market now worth more than $200 million.

Curator of the exhibit Glynis Jones said Australian Muslims were adapting fashion to suit them and that they were looking for “garments that express their faith but also allow them to explore the nuances of fashion and trends.”

The exhibit features a wide array of designs, including casual wear, formal designs and swimwear. It also spotlights influential Muslim fashion bloggers like Delina Darusman-Gala.
