Hijab on the shop floor: Muslims in fashion retail in Britain

Lewis, Reina (2013) Hijab on the shop floor: Muslims in fashion retail in Britain. In: Islamic Fashion and Anti-Fashion: New Perspectives from Europe and America. Bloomsbury Academic, London, pp. 181-200. ISBN 9780857853356

Type of Research: Book Section
Creators: Lewis, Reina

From the publisher's description of the book in which this chapter appears:

What new Islamic dress practices and anxieties are emerging in these different locations? How far are they shaped by local circumstances, migration histories, particular religious traditions, multicultural interfaces and transnational links? To what extent do developments in and debates about Islamic dress cut across such local specificities, encouraging new channels of communication and exchange?

With original contributions from the fields of anthropology, fashion studies, media studies, religious studies, history, geography and cultural studies, Islamic Fashion and Anti-Fashion will be of interest to students and scholars working in these fields as well as to general readers interested in the public presence of Islam in Europe and America.
