Today we will look at hijab fashion in Cape Town, South Africa. South Africa is very diverse with a relatively large Muslim population. Being from Cape Town myself, I would love to show you our fashionable hijab styles and trends for this year. We are huge fashion followers, but also create our own styles. Our Muslim sisters love to wear fashionable clothing with style, while maintaining a modest look.
Hijab fashion week SA is a yearly event attended by many ladies. This is where you see the collaborative efforts of many designers. We have an abundance of online stores, like HSE of Bespoke by Waseefa Hutton. Top boutique in Cape Town, also caters especially for Islamic wear.
Capetonians are fond of wearing abayas therefore, I have attached wonderful designs for you. Since the climate in South Africa is of both extremes, extremely hot and extremely cold. We often wear the turban hijab style in the hot summer months and layer our hijab for the cold winter months.
I will be showing you a collection of fashion by bloggers and designers who are proudly South African.
You will often find animal print on the design of our clothing. Take this abaya for example, it incorporates zebra print in the design with a turban hijab style.

Ladies love wearing elaborately decorated abayas in the most unique styles. They are always looking for abaya styles which are different.
A beautifully textured abaya for the winter months. Many ladies wear the abaya for Eid, since the designs resemble dresses and are quite different too.
Platform heels, a pearl head piece and a front wrap abaya. Accessorising your abaya correctly can give it a very fashionable look.
Wow, absolutely stunning detail on this abaya. Keep your hijab style minimal when your abaya is fully detailed. Adding a matching headpiece will give it the finishing touch.
Lace is in fashion at the moment and is therefore worked into the abaya design.
