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.
