The most iconic modest looks from the runway
We love how fashion houses from all over the world have customized their clothing in order to cater to the need of the hour, modest clothing. The market for modest clothing is extensive and designers know how to celebrate these conservative yet extremely feminine silhouettes. Here are a few standout looks from fashion shows from top luxury fashion houses around the world.
From Paris to Los Angeles, Dior showcased an array of cuts that drew inspiration from several artworks including American artist Georgia O'Keeffe. The collection showcased a dose of modest fashion with belted kaftans and oversized printed coats matched with tan sandals and other funky accessories.
In Kyoto, the highly awaited Cruise '18 collection show by Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton unfolded voluminous silks and structured fabrics that were cut into maxi dresses and tailored wide legged pants for the overall modest look. Match these with some straight linen pants and these looks can take you from being chic to edgy.
Valentino might have been inspired from certain ethnic influences, hip-hop and the urban streets of New York City for collection but for Creative Director, Pierpaolo Piccioli, certain Arab-like silhouettes also spilled into his collection —colorful maxi dresses, detailed prints and monochrome kaftans with brightly colored embroidered motifs took these clothes from modest to feminine and funky.
From metallics to floral prints, Gucci’s trans-seasonal collection truly showcased Maison's signature fantasy-meets-fairytale aesthetic with key pieces that cater to the quintessential woman who likes to dress up modestly with certain core values – strong, feminine and fashionable.
