Contributed by Michelle St. Pierre

A major department store in the UK, Debenhams, has introduced a new line of Muslim clothing which will include hijabs.  The line was introduced in their flagship store located on Oxford Street and will be brought to their other stores in Birmingham Bullring, Westfield in Shepherd’s Bush, Manchester’s Trafford Center and Leicester’s Highcross Shopping Centers.

The clothing line, Aab, is touted as being “contemporary modest wear” for women and the introduction in the UK also coincides with the launch of the clothing line at Debenhams’ international stores in Dubai, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Iran, Indonesia, and Malaysia. The line consists of tops, dresses, jumpsuits, kimono wraps, caps, hijab pins and headscarves and of course, the hijab.

Jeanette Whithear, of Debenhams, said, “Adding the high quality fashion range to our product mix enables us to offer collections that are highly relevant in both international markets and to our domestic customers. This is a step closer to creating a product offer that caters for broader customer needs.”

Nazmin Alim, founder and creative director at Aab, said, “The partnership with Debenhams opens up some very exciting opportunities for us.”

The hijab is a head covering that Muslim woman wear that covers both the head and neck. In other Arab countries, the niqab may be worn that covers most of the face leaving only the eyes visible and the burqa that covers the entire face.
