A 'revolutionary' fashion show aimed at empowering Muslim women returned to London this year as stunning models strutted down the catwalk in carves, hijabs and loose-fitting maxi dresses.
More than 40 designers from around the world showcased their lines during Modest Fashion Week in London's Saatchi Gallery today.
The event, which is being hosted by organisers Haute Elan in the capital for the second time, aims to give a platform to brands that cater for religious women and those who prefer to dress modestly.
MFW features shopping, runway shows, talks and workshops, as well as networking and trade discussions.
Its first show in February was heralded as a success, with members of the Muslim community along with fashion fans praising the event for 'sending a positive message'.
Twitter user @siagalal wrote: 'It's great and inspires so many muslimahs & shows them that they can be both fashionable and modest.'
Meanwhile hijabi blogger Dina Tokio, who has more than 1 million Instagram followers, described it as 'revolutionary'.
In an interview with Blogosphere magazine, she said: 'I feel like brands are coming on board with diversity now and I think that it’s down to social media and how much talent there is out there.
'I want to show that you can coincide faith with fashion and that there are Muslim women who actually represent that.'
