Not only this, the designers have started using embroidery, motifs, beads and other material to decorate such clothes, including Jilbabs and Abayas. The attractively designed Islamic clothing has caught the attention of non Muslim women too. International sports goods company, Nike, has introduced an athletic jilbab to be worn by women while playing volleyball.

The urge to become fashionable without compromising with their religious values has made Muslim women look out for clothes that look elegant, and are beautifully designed and attractive at the same time. The traditional plain colored Islamic clothes have given way to colored Jilbabs and their matching hijabs.

I Studied at home, read a lot of books, crocheted, knitted, and sewed whatever I thought was fashionable. The only thing I liked was dressing up so the other girls would hate me for it, while all the boys drooled over me but was too scared to tell me. I would probably have them run home with a black eye for touching.
Just what is a jilbab? Basically, it is a collective term for all loose fitting and lengthy clothing items that Moslem women wear. But unlike the other clothing pieces worn by the Moslem women, this jilbab is basically a form of a coat that is meant to be worn over the clothes so that the Islamic requirement for wearing the hijab will be met automatically.
