About the Author

Hafsa Lodi is an American journalist who has been covering fashion in the Middle East for the past decade. She moved to the UAE at 14. She has a BA in journalism from the Ryerson School of Journalism in Toronto and an MA in Islamic Law from SOAS in London. The relationships between religion, culture and modernity have always fascinated Hafsa, who covered topics like honour killings in Canada's South Asian communities, the use of DNA evidence in rape cases in Pakistan and the industrialization of the Holy City of Makkah, before turning to the fashion journalism beat. She writes for The National newspaper and fashion magazines, Mojeh and Vogue India.

Reviews

"this enthusiastic and wide-ranging account successfully disputes Western stereotypes of Muslim women as "repressed victims of a tyrannical religion.""--Publishers Weekly
She maintains a balanced and accessible tone, introducing modest-wear designers and models
alongside analyses of international sales and marketing strategies. And the sales figures she
quotes are impressive: retailers ranging from H&M to Macy's are becoming involved in the
modesty movement. This trend shows no sign of going away, so expect increasing reader
interest.--Booklist
