As Muslims around the world prepare for Ramadan, one way some women in Tanzania are getting ready is by considering if clothes can be modest and stylish at the same time.
This was the theme of Stara Fashion week:
One of the organisers, Latifa Makau, said that the aim of the event was to challenge the idea that women who cover up are unfashionable.
“A lot of people have this wrong perception that you can’t be modest and stylish at the same time. So they’d abandon modesty just so they wouldn’t look outdated,” she said.
One of the audience members, Fatma Sosthenes, told me the show inspired her.
“From now on I will try and be a modest but classy Muslim girl”
