When it comes to dressing halal, women are really spoilt for choice. The first avenue businesses cashed in on halal dressing was in the abaya industry. From low end to Swarovski crystal studded abayas, Dubai opened its first mall dedicated to selling only abayas. But since then, the niche for halal garment has been greatly broadened, with designers creating special ranges for head scarves, tunic tops and undershirts (to be worn under more revealing shirts/dresses). Most significantly, was the creation of a Lebanese-Australian woman, Aheda Zanetti, called the burquini—the Muslim woman’s solution to swimming in public and mixed environment. If you couldn’t guess from its name, the burqini (a combination of burqa and bikini) consists of a full body suit with a tunic top and a head covering attached to the swimming suit.
