Uniqlo is Releasing a Line of Modest Wear this February

On February 24th, Uniqlo will release a 30-piece collection of modest wear designed in collaboration with British designer, Hana Tajima.

Japanese-based Uniqlo has teamed up with British designer Hana Tajima to create a line of modest wear often sported by women in Saudi Arabia and practitioners of Islam worldwide like hijabs, abayas, and baju kurung.

The entire 30-piece collection, which is being released at Uniqlo’s two Canadian locations; Yorkdale Shopping Centre and CF Toronto Eaton Centre, will be available in 81 colours at moderate price points. Shoppers can expect prices to start at $7.90 for a headband, $39.90 for a hijab, and work upwards to $79.90 for a long dress.

Kat Adams, a spokesperson for Uniqlo, said of the collection, “Uniqlo really pays attention to consumer demand and there is a consumer demand for modest wear and we are happy to oblige.”

Other pieces customers can look forward to shopping in the spring-summer collection include long skirts and pants and tunics that can be put together like the baju kurung of South East Asia; a long black dress with a high neckline and long sleeves inspired by the Saudi abaya, as well as foundation pieces, like inner hijabs to wear under a hijab or while playing sports, to keep hair in place.

Uniqlo has been selling modest-wear in other countries since 2015.
