“Every woman likes to look beautiful, and Muslim women are no exception,” Says Anas Sillwood, Managing Partner of SHUKR Islamic Clothing. “However, even when dressing up for special occasions, Muslim women like to look dignified and modest, as well as beautiful, in their clothing.”
SHUKR provides appropriate modest and Islamic clothing that meets Islamic standards of dress and Western sensibilities in different collections throughout the year. These collections include an array of men’s kufis, a variety of long sleeved tops, tunics and cardigans for layering, abayas, hijabs, long skirts, and wide leg jeans. All year round, SHUKR makes it easy to bring both beautiful designs and functional extras – like pockets and buttoned sleeves – into an everyday wardrobe.
Traditional Islamic clothing, such as long, loose-fitting dresses, are also available and are providing to be popular among many western and international customers due to their versatility and modesty. SHUKR also offers various dresses that provide beautiful solutions to evening wear. Their range of abaya gowns varies from being designed with lavishly embellished necklines to fabulously full flared skirts. Some of the pieces are subtle, while others are rendered in brightly colored fabric and lace. They all have one thing in common, however – a modest fit any hijabi would approve of.
“It’s important for Muslims in the west to feel comfortable in what they wear, and it is our goal to help them to do so,” says Sillwood.
Launched in 2001, SHUKR was the first company to provide contemporary modest clothing which met the aesthetic and cultural needs of the new generation of Muslims living in the West. As the company has developed, it has also attracted a loyal non-Muslim customer base, people who are attracted by the stylish, modest clothing SHUKR offers. SHUKR is proud to be able to serve people of all religions who find that their faith encourages them dress modestly, without having to sacrifice style and beauty.
