Now the Saudi driving ban for women is lifted, it is fashion designer Eman Joharjy inspired to have freedom to translate in a trendy, colorful looks for muslim women.
Colorful, embroidered jumpsuits, hoods, tighter elbows and shorter lengths. There is a world of difference between the trendy abayas from Joharjy Eman and the traditional, loose-fitting, black robes. That something can, Eman is also due to the progressive young crown prince Mohammed bin Salman. He brought in recent years, a veritable emancipation change in his country: so do women, for example, no permission of a male relative for their company to open and is the power of the religious police intervene.
Today, women are allowed to even play sports at sunset: ‘We feel encouraged by the support of the government, we should be running and cycling,” says designer Joharjy Eman to Reuters. But because their traditional robes not useful to a workout or to bike, took Eman the task on themselves to get the women to design. They are shorter, more practical, more toned and, most importantly, very colorful, ” for women of color.’ Eman believes in the social freedoms in its country arise, but does not believe in the abolition of the so-called abayas. ‘It protects us from the sun and the naughty boys’, says the designer.
