 Floral patterns were among the designs adorning long robe garments and matching headscarves at Japan’s first “Muslimah Fashion Show”, which is taking place as part of a two-day Halal Expo Japan event.

Around 10 brands, mainly from Singapore, were showcasing their creations at the Tokyo Modest Fashion Show.
