Emirati designer Rabia Z at Fashion Pakistan Week in Karachi.
Â AHI: We have the very first corporate sponsored billboard for women who cover their headsâ€¦
RZ: â€¦that is fantastic. It is common here in the Gulf but nice to see it outside of GCC.
AHI: Meanwhile, what I see as an â€˜extremistâ€™ streak of menswear designers are promoting their collections through very disturbing campaigns of women with their faces completely muffled under their scarvesâ€¦
RZ: They are probably trying to copy the West, misrepresenting Muslim women and then calling it â€œartâ€!
AHI: What do you say for human figures featured without a head?
RZ: This bit is OK.Â Even net-a-porter does that with their video clips of outfits as do Islamic clothing...
