With new ranges of beautiful abayas, SHUKR aims to continue showing Muslim women that they do not have to substitute modesty for style in the winter season.
Anas Sillwood didn’t plan on helping create one of the first globally recognized contemporary Islamic clothing brands, but that’s exactly what he did in 2001 with the creation of SHUKR Islamic Clothing. With stores in the US and the UK with current headquarters in Jordan, SHUKR sells modest clothing; including long dresses and skirts, hijabs, abaya gowns, loose tops for men and women, and popular Islamic hats.
At the forefront of their winter collection is their wide range of abayas. SHUKR abayas are unique because they offer a hybrid between traditional Islamic wear and modern western styles, keeping women at the front of fashion all around the world. The Islamic dresses incorporate simplicity, functionality and natural fabrics which make them perfect for any occasion.
The SHUKR abaya is different from other abayas because of its exceptionally high quality, beautiful neutral colors, natural fabrics, and the addition of functional extras like pockets and rollable sleeves. Says Anas Sillwood, Managing Partner “Our goal is to provide solutions to some of the problems that Muslim women encounter when trying to dress in an Islamically appropriate and yet western way.”
“Every woman likes to look beautiful, and Muslim women are no exception. However, even when dressing up for special occasions, Muslim women like to look dignified and modest, as well as beautiful, in their clothing,” Sillwood continues.
SHUKR is the leading Islamic clothing company dedicated to putting faith into fashion. Launched in 2001, SHUKR Islamic Clothing was the first company to provide contemporary, modest clothing that meets the needs of Muslims and non-Muslims living in the West. SHUKR is proud to be able to serve people of all religions who find that their faith encourages them to dress modestly, without having to sacrifice style and beauty.
