On Opening Day of the exhibition Contemporary Muslim Fashions, join Jill D’Alessandro, Ghizlan Guenez, and Her Highness Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz for a panel exploring the synergy between Muslim modest dress codes and current fashion trends.

Ghizlan Guenez is the founder and CEO of The Modist. She conceived the idea of merging high fashion with modesty. Guenez observed women of all ages and nationalities who spent hours organizing their wardrobes while adhering to their values, and identified a space in the fashion world that had not been addressed, where leading global fashion brands cater to and curate the wardrobes of modestly dressed women. The Modist delivers an exceptional shopping experience that understands the ‘Modist’ woman’s needs regardless of religion, culture, age or ethnicity. 

Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz has observed the Middle East’s evolving fashion landscape in her role as the founding Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Arabia and the founder of D’NA, an innovative concept store responsible for introducing emerging fashion talent to the Arabian Gulf region. She has been interviewed by leading fashion publications and participated in the 2017 Condé Nast International Luxury Conference in Muscat.

Jill D’Alessandro is curator in charge of costume and textile arts at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and co-curator of Contemporary Muslim Fashions. Her publications include Summer of Love: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll (2017) and Contemporary Muslim Fashions (2018).
