Shirt And Skirt

This is a Shirt and skirt. It was designed by Mary Katrantzou.

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.

Its medium is silk, polyester. It is a part of the department.


British fashion designer Mary Katrantzou first showcased modest fashions in Qatar in 2011 and now creates capsule collections for luxury e-retailer The Modist. The designers represented on The Modist are chosen without consideration of their religion or cultural heritage, but the modest market has proved attractive to Muslim and non-Muslim designers alike.
