The fashion of modest Muslim, Jewish and Sikh men and women is the inspiration of the Malikah Festival held this weekend. KBCS’s Yuko Kodama interviewed Chema Oh, organizer for the Malikah Festival and Owner of Boutique Al Firdaws located in Redmond’s Muslim Association of Puget Sound (MAPS) building this week. They discuss the power of the hijab.
The Malikah Festival is hosted in partnership with the City of Redmond and Zena Consulting. The event is this Saturday, May 6th at the Redmond Senior Center from 4pm to 8pm. It’s free and open to all.
Between the civil rights movement, Vietnam War protests and sheer numbers of teenage baby boomers, the US saw a true revolution in politics, style and fashion between the mid 60s and 70’s. This week, we highlight counter culture fashion with University of Washington instructor and guest curator of the Bellevue Arts Museum’s current exhibit, Counter Couture, Michael Cepress. The exhibit running through January 10th, 2016
