Memorable Moments for Hijabs in the Fashion Industry

Written by

It is said that history always repeats itself and this is evident when you take a closer look at fashion and the evolution thereof. From the big 70’s revival currently on every runway to the biggest fashion magazines recreating editorials from decades ago;  looking back on all the previous fashion era’s, I can’t help but wish I could go back in time and experience it in all its glamour and glory.

In the 1960’s and 1970’s, head scarves became one of the biggest fashion accessory trends amongst celebrities with Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor and Grace Kelly all stylishly incorporating this item into their look. Magazines including Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and L’Officiel styled their cover pages in head wraps and this proved to the world that dressing modestly is the ultimate form of style.
