How can women’s fashion become truly size-inclusive? Beyond just larger clothing sizes, inclusivity addresses product quality and pricing, design functionality and fashion trends, and bodies of all shapes and sizes. Presented as a complement to Contemporary Muslim Fashions, this panel explores current dialogues about size inclusivity within the modest fashion sector from the perspectives of modest fashion designers, retailers, models, and social media influencers.

Panelists include Leah Vernon, international Hijabi social media influencer, award-winning author, motivational speaker, educator, and content creator, and Kerim Türe, Founder and Managing Partner of Modanisa, among others.

The conversation is moderated by Laura L. Camerlengo, Associate Curator of Costume and Textile Arts at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and co-curator of Contemporary Muslim Fashions.

Contemporary Muslim Fashions is organized by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
