Islamic fashion is driven by a strong demand for clothing defined within the parameters of modesty by the ever-growing modest values based global consumer population. The global Islamic fashion sector enjoys a strong trade foundation as well as a deep commitment from a primarily growing Muslim population whose youth are growing at twice the rate of any other population then a strong sub-market of Non-Muslims / other faiths whose appreciation for modest wear makes this trillion-dollar industry an exciting space for all businesses to realize unmatched commercial success!
Islamic Design & Arts spans a vast range of artifacts including pottery, glass, paintings, calligraphy, to rugs, architecture, interiors, embroidery, gadgets, lifestyle products, and more. It is hard to separate Islamic fashion and design as the global consumer market has proven that their taste for one aesthetics leads to their appetite for the other; and the youth keep the demand up for well designed products. This industry is in great need of analysis, research, and data and IFDC has set out to place a stronger focus on this part of the overall industry, which we believe could well surpass many major industries around the world. We aim to exceed all standards of showcasing, business practice, aesthetic excellence, and overall standards.
