Evening Gown, Shawl, And Turban

This is a Evening gown, shawl, and turban. It was designed by Raşit Bağzibağlı and made for Modanisa.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco as part of Contemporary Muslim Fashions.

It is dated Desert Dream Spring/Summer Collection 2018. Its medium is polyester chiffon. It is a part of the department.

When Modanisa, one of modest fashion’s largest online retailers, commissioned Raşit Bağzıbağlı to design a limited-edition capsule collection for Dubai’s first-ever Modest Fashion Week in 2017, he traded his typically skin-baring gowns for dresses with long sleeves and skirts. He maintained his signature glamour by including lush patterns, lace, embroidery, and sequins.

This object was previously on display as a part of the exhibition Contemporary Muslim Fashions.
