Prof. Liz Bucar on Pious Fashion in the LA Times

What do Muslim women wear? “Ripped jeans tucked into combat boots, structured jackets accessorized with designer sunglasses, flowy pastel chiffons embellished with crystal-encrusted brooches and tailored batik dresses paired with hand-dyed head coverings. These are just a few examples of what I call pious fashion: clothing that aims to be modest and modern,” writes WGSS affiliated faculty member Liz Bucar, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, in a recent piece for the LA Times. Bucar discusses how Islamic women have impacted the fashion industry, from Dolce & Gabana to Project Runway. Read the full piece here. And if you find that interesting, consider coming to Prof. Bucar’s book talk on November 3 at the Harvard Bookstore, where she will discuss her newest book Pious Fashion.
