Anas Sillwood didn’t plan on helping create one of the first globally recognized contemporary Islamic clothing brands, but that’s exactly what he did in 2001 with the creation of SHUKR Clothing. SHUKR specializes in modest clothing; including long dresses and skirts, hijabs, loose tops for men and women, abaya gowns, and popular Islamic hats – with a twist of modern fashion trends which sets them apart from other high street stores.
The favorite of any collection is, without a doubt, SHUKR’s unique range of abayas. These abayas stand out from other collections because they are simple, functional, modest, and fit in well with regular western wear. No matter where a woman lives, works and socializes, SHUKR has an abaya to suit every women’s fashion needs.
“It’s important for women in the west to feel comfortable in what they wear, and it is our goal to help them to do so,” says Sillwood. “Every woman likes to look and feel beautiful, and Muslim women are no exception.”
The new hijab range varies from elegant embellishments to simple and easy-to-style fabrics. From geometric designs to soft pastels to beautiful embroidery, each hijab is uniquely designed for both comfort and style. Some pieces are subtle while others are brightly colored and stand out from any crowd. These traditional hijabs with their western inspirations are proving to be popular among women across the world due to their versatility and modesty.
SHUKR is the leading Islamic clothing company dedicated to putting faith into fashion. Launched in 2001, SHUKR Islamic Clothing was the first company to provide contemporary, modest clothing that meets the needs of Muslims and non-Muslims living in the West. SHUKR is proud to be able to serve people of all religions who find that their faith encourages them to dress modestly, without having to sacrifice style and beauty.
