Hijabs, Belgian designers have discovered, have wide appeal. Women around the world are responding to the high-fashion scarves and head coverings that are the work of contemporary hijab fashion company Noor D'Izar.

While many Muslim women may or may not choose to wear hijabs, Belgian designers Fatima Rafiy and Inge Rombouts are hoping that non-Muslims will see their appeal. After all, there's no bad hair day when your hair is hidden by a beautiful hijab.

Implications - The inspiration for these Belgian designers was to create a headscarf that would be appealing to Muslims and but also non-Muslims. This is a very ingenious way of spreading culture and encouraging a wider public dialogue in a friendly and positive manner. All in all, this is simply a great project.
