IFDC Designer Consultation
Over recent years, the potential of the global Islamic fashion market has piqued the interest of a number of established mainstream designers and retailers, keen to access the loyal and lucrative consumer following that this market offers.
However, mainstream designers’ efforts in accessing these consumers has been somewhat of a hit-and-miss scenario given the reviews from consumers and the actual clothing items offered.
Key factors and requirements in the design of fashion that would appeal to the valuable Muslim/Modest consumer have been overlooked. Thus, instead of endearing themselves to what would be a very loyal life-long customer base, designers and retailers have actually ended up alienating these consumers by showing a lack of understanding and due diligence.
Islamic Fashion and Design Council (IFDC) works with mainstream designers and retailers in better understanding and successfully winning this valuable consumer group over. Through IFDC’s consulting arm, which specializes in a focused approach and better communication with Modest (Muslim and non-Muslim) consumers through our research, data, and vast global reach, the organization is able to facilitate an effective connection for the mainstream designers and retailers looking to better serve this attractive market.

IFDC Research Study on Global Islamic/Modest Fashion and Arts
The Islamic Fashion and Design Council (IFDC) has recognised the global need for a deeper understanding of the Islamic fashion and design sector. In order to attain more comprehensive information and insights, the study must be conducted on an ongoing basis. IFDC believes this market will yield significant global positioning, if approached and managed correctly.
IFDC continues to undertake an ongoing global research study program focusing on several aspects of the sector and market whilst developing a comprehensive understanding of the consumer profile and demands. This has not been adequately addressed thus far, hence the targeted approach by IFDC.
This study is expected to provide a strong blue print on succeeding in the way forward. Given the value and power of this market, there is nothing more pertinent at this stage. It is important that a full picture on the market, stakeholders, and the highly coveted consumer be provided through this work.
The program includes think tanks, roundtables, focus groups, surveys and further market studies.

Media Platforms: The Modest Channel, Cover Magazine, Portal, Etc.
Islamic Fashion and Design Council (IFDC) has received a great amount of interest from the modest market on all things modest that will support the parameters within which they choose to live. Due to this overwhelming attention, IFDC launched dedicated media platforms:
Starting with a channel on YouTube called The Modest Channel™ where a range of programming has been slated to target this market. The first of these programs is a vlog series that discuss a range of topics from fashion, beauty and even personal success – The Modest Chapter™, was launched to bring awareness of what is available in the market that would be of interest to this group, while also sharing tips and tricks that will help them to lead optimal lives. This along with the Modest Man™ and the Modest Runway™ shows makes this channel a one stop shop for all consumers with interests in the modest life.
Cover Magazine™ is another exciting initiative being deemed the “Vogue of modest fashion”. With fashion, beauty, and lifestyle information presented in a striking and effective manner, Cover Magazine™ is soon going to be the handbook that nobody who remotely cares about the modest life or even style, can do without.
This, in addition to our portals, social media, and newsletters, IFDC has captured effective communication to this trillion dollar audience unlike any other.
The Modest Channel™ and its shows can be accessed on YouTube at youtube.com/c/TheModestChannel

IFDC Training and Development
Islamic Fashion and Design Council (IFDC) is committed to the ultimate development of every human being and has a tremendous focus on the success of all stakeholders globally.
The comprehensive training programs have been deemed ‘life changers’ by trainees worldwide. We have trained participants from over 30 countries and the demand continues to grow.
The push to put together outstanding training came when IFDC Chairwoman, Alia Khan built her charity work in underprivileged areas of the Muslim world. Not willing to accept that people could not help themselves, she teamed up with the best in every field of education and human development to find real solutions that worked.
Thus, IFDC’s workshops and training programs were developed. The programs are constantly being fine-tuned and updated through a comprehensive research department and IFDC works only with top experts who test everything against sound ideology/principles that yield results before incorporating into our training programs.
These programs have helped attendees in their professional and personal capacity. Workshops can be tailored to meet specific requirements of companies and organizations looking to really make a difference in their journey forward!
