Veiling in Fashion enters the worlds of women who wear the hijab, both as an aspect of their religious observance and community belonging, and as a fashion statement, drawing upon global Islamic fashion history. The book uses rich ethnographic investigation of everyday veiling practices among Muslim women in the city of Helsinki as a lens through which to reflect on and advance understanding of matters concerning Muslim dress in international Muslim minority contexts. The book provides an innovative approach to studying veiling by connecting varied realms of practice, demonstrating how domains as apparently separate as fashion, materiality, city spaces, private life, religious beliefs, and cosmopolitan social conditions are all tightly bound up together in ways that only a sensitive multi-disciplinary approach can reveal. It will appeal to scholars and students in fashion, gender, religion, material cultures, and the construction of space.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Based on extensive ethnographic research, Veiling in Fashion unravels the complexities of the veil's entanglement with spatial ambiguities. This is a compelling work which offers a much-welcomed, novel approach and moves our understanding of veiling beyond a simplified dichotomous representation. -- Yildiz Atasoy, Simon Fraser University, Canada
Almila makes a compelling argument for the global political significance and interconnectedness of everyday veiling practices, all the while drawing attention to the spatial dynamics of Islamic fashion. This is a valuable contribution to cultural studies, sociology, anthropology and Middle Eastern studies. -- Ozlem Sandikci, University of Glasgow, UK
