The Irish fashion blog, irishfashionblog.ie, has decided to add the hijab to its website, with a “dress” section.
It has a “wearable hijab” section in the same article.
The “dress section” will feature photos of Irish women in various styles.
“It is a chance to reflect on the challenges facing women in the fashion industry today,” the blog’s editor, Marie Murphy, told the Irish Times.
“The hijab is a symbol of our faith, and of the need to be a visible, active, and defiant presence in our society.”
In a follow-up blog post, Murphy added that the hijab “has become a personal expression of who we are”.
The blog’s editors also said that the article was meant to show the “differences in the way people in the Irish Muslim community view and represent the hijab”.
“The article has been taken very seriously by the editorial team and the article has now been shared widely on social media, with some people even making comments of support,” Murphy wrote.
“We are very proud of the work done in bringing this article to our attention.”
