Islamic Fashion & Design CouncilIslamic  Fashion  and  Design  Council  (IFDC)  is  the  world’s  leading  modest  fashion and  design  council  representing  the  Islamic  economy  and  its  stakeholders.  With offices  in  10  countries  (HQ  in  NY,  USA,  other  offices:  UK,  Italy,  South  Africa, Turkey, Russia,  Canada,  Pakistan,  and  an  affiliate  office  in  the  UAE  and  with  Malaysia upcoming)  and  growing  rapidly  to  other  countries,  IFDC  is  a  leading  advocate  for Islamic  fashion  and  design  (arts,  gadgets,  architecture,  interiors,  etc.)  professionals and  aspiring  talent,  has  an  array  of  products,  services,  and  effective  training programs  for  all  levels.  Our  platform  is  designed  to  ensure  the  success  of  Islamic fashion  and  design  in  the  global  marketplace  through  various  initiatives  facilitating the  industry  players  in  accessing  the  vast  growth  potential. 

IFDC  aligns  itself  with  leading  and  budding  mainstream  and  Islamic  fashion  and design  brands,  government  organizations,  institutions,  corporations,  media,  global conferences,  events,  and  fashion  weeks  to  ensure  a  powerful,  sustainable  and supportive  presence.  IFDC’s  current  initiatives  include  collaborations  on  iFash™ courses  at  the  French  fashion  design  school,  Esmod,  IFDC’s  Pop-Up  School, fashion  weeks  and  events  in  multiple  cities,  IFDC’s  exciting  Cover  Magazine,  the  revolutionary  Pret-A-Cover™  retail  program, Research  initiatives  and  reports,  IFDC’s  BOMFD  and  marquis  events  for  all  industry  players  and  consumers.  IFDC  continues  to build  on  its  vision  to  provide  products  and  services  designed  to  help  the  Islamic  fashion  (iFash™)  and  the  Islamic  design (iDez™) industry  develop  and  succeed.

Islamic  fashion  is  driven  by  a  strong  demand  for  clothing  defined  within  the  parameters  of  modesty  by  the  ever-growing  modest values  based  consumer  population.  The  global  Islamic  fashion  sector  enjoys  a  strong  trade  foundation  as  well  as  a  deep commitment  from  a  Muslim  population  whose  youth  are  growing  at  twice  the  rate  of  any  other  population.  There  is  also  a  strong sub-market  of  Non-Muslims  /  other  faiths  whose  appreciation  for  modest  wear  makes  this  trillion-dollar  industry  an  exciting  space for  everyone!

Islamic  Design  spans  a  vast  range  of  artifacts  including  pottery,  glass,  paintings,  calligraphy,  to  rugs,  architecture,  interiors, embroidery,  gadgets,  and  more.  It  is  hard  to  separate  Islamic  fashion  and  design  as  the  global  consumer  market  has  proven  that their  taste  for  one  aesthetics  leads  to  their  appetite  for  the  other;  and  the  youth  keep  the  demand  up  for  well  designed  gadgets and  new  ideas  as  well.  This  industry  is  in  great  need  of  analysis,  research,  and  data  and  IFDC  has  set  out  to  place  a  stronger focus  on  this part  of  the  design  industry,  which  we  believe  could  well  surpass  many  major  industries  around  the  world.  We  aim to exceed  all  standards  of  showcasing,  business  practice,  aesthetic  excellence,  and  overall  standards.  Contact  us  at Office@IFDCouncil.org  to  learn  how  you  can  be  a  part  of  this  exciting  platform.
