When it comes to representation, we know how difficult it is for all cultures to be seen and heard. We always believe in supporting every woman and highlighting her story. We love female-owned fashion, don’t you? Modest Fashion isn’t just a trend; it’s here to stay, and we love these brands’ take on it.
Often attributed with religious and cultural dress, Modest fashion extends to all those who simply prefer to dress modestly. We’ve rounded up a few of them, but there are so many out there to support and explore.
Since Aab’s launch in 2007 through its online store, it has rapidly gained global recognition as one of the leading modest fashion brands. Nazmin Alim, who is the founder and creative director of Aab, emphasizes simplicity, style and comfort for her products. Prime examples would be the Blue Dust Maxi Dress or the Hikari Maxi Dress, both of which have high-quality tailoring and natural fabrics to exemplify beauty and gracefulness. Slide on Shade M’s Muse matte liquid lipstick shade #15 Bare, and you’ll have a softer look. This British fashion house has also become synonymous with creating original design pieces with the help of its in-house designers. Aab is taking the modest fashion world by storm, and it isn’t surprising since modest fashion in the UK market alone has been estimated to be worth over £100 million.
Lisa Vogl is the woman behind this wonderful clothing company. She is an award-winning fashion photographer who started the brand to address the gap with the lack of stylish modest wear in the market.

If you’re looking to spice it up, finish your look with Shade #2 NAR.
