Fashion industry thrives in Iran

91 ratings | 193717 views
Iranian designers fuse international and European fashion with traditional Iranian styles, breathing new life into Islamic fashion in Iran. At a rare official fashion show in the country's capital, Tehran, designers took the opportunity to display some colourful and vibrant Islamic costumes which are not only in line with Islamic codes, but also current fashion trends. While not exactly trying to put the chic into chador, Iranian fashion designer Haniyeh Abedi believes that the strict Islamic dress code requiring women to be covered from head to toe does not mean they cannot look good.

Now let's not generalize millions of people here, there is good and bad in every culture. You can't say "This ethnicity of men are this or that", it's simply wrong.

@missysweetkissy what do you mean by wearing a chador? The first woman interviewed is definitely not wearing that, it's something else..Just a long overcoat.

@PersoAryanism hijab is not oppression nor is Islam, hijab is simply a cloth being forced to wear anything is the oppression not the hijab

Islam was a religion not a culture! I am smart enough not to believe in the certainty of religion or atheism. Stop talking for real Iranians. A minority wearing hejab never represented the pre-1977 Iran. Watch some TV. Do you see Iranian women outside of Iran wearing the hejab (again, unless they work for the dictator Islamic government)? You are NOT an atheist! You're trying to defend and promote Islam, you hezbollahi. You're not Iranian, otherwise you're a traitor.
Isabelle R (9 years ago)
I guess you are not Iranian so don't try to understand the Iranian people. Non-Iranian muslims' minds are poisoned by the Islamic Republic's propaganda. If you like Islam so much, go and live there. Why do you think so many Iranians fled their homeland? Anyway, I am not intrested in being an online teacher!

I said that most Iranians now HATE Islam and its clergy (I don't care if they are or aren't the same). Iran was at the centre of, and a part of the Persian Empire. I said Persian cultrure is NOT Islamic culture, and neither is the culture of the rest of Iran. Islam was imposed. You can see the real position of the Iranians towards Islam when you meet Iranians abroad, not under the gun. They don't wear the hejab unless paid spies for the Islamic Regime.
Isabelle R (9 years ago)
p.s. I know it because I am officially an Iranian-Canadian, and have spent a great deal studying my ancient culture and history, as well as the current situation. (When I say Persian culture, that is NOT the Islamic culture!!! It goes way back!!!)
Isabelle R (9 years ago)
You need to know that in Iran, the cities are exploding with population, and most Iranians do live in large cities. Most of them are NOT religious. There used to be some respect when Iran was secular- but now people hate the guts of those nasty clergy. The Islamic dress code is a must after 1979.
Isabelle R (9 years ago)
correction: "folk" dress n.b. Poor Iranian designers have to work within the stupid laws of Islam. This regime took this progressive nation back to the Middle Ages :o(
Isabelle R (9 years ago)
It's NOT because of the culture. Most Iranians don't give a rat's ass about Islam. It's only since 1979, and only because of the stupid Islamic governmnet that took power then.
Isabelle R (9 years ago)
This is idiotic!!! I am Iranian and I KNOW that Islamic "style" is NOT Persian or Iranian. That is only imposed by the stupid Islamic government ruling Iran since 1979. This is not fashion. It's a shame. Iranian/ Persian styles can be found in the fold dress of our villages, not in Islamic fashion. Iranians are NOT an Islamic nation!

Well, apparnetly before the revolution women had more right than now. It won't get better until, we get rid of this current regime, becuae most of the parliment are men and those women who are in parliment are the doughter or wife of those men in parliment, and they support whetver their men say.and whetver is against women's righ have advantages for men, and men rules, so no one actually support women, but we will CHANGE it.

If you ask a muslim men to give you the divorce right and custody of childeren, they think that you scam them.Custody of childeren and having the divorce right is 100% AND ABSOLUTLY women's right, why women have to fight for thier 100% right? If I like my in-laws or not shouldn't matter, in both cases childeren should be mineee. In fact nothing in islam suport women.
Parastou M (10 years ago)
totallybarefoot : couple of months ago the law changed in iran, and now men can marry without their wife permision. in what thing men and women are equall? As far as I know 2women= 1 men, gilrs inherite half of what they brothers inherite?childeren is for men, no divorce right for women.

No Matter how modern lifestyle u want to have..theres nothing to do with Modern Islamic fashion as a whole for ex; abaya is tight..your veil is not proper..you show off your chest..We shouldn't change the way Allah want it to be.. Dont get in to Kafiruun style..
