“Fashion ComPassion is delighted to be working with the British Museum. We feel honoured to be showcasing the first socially conscious fashion brand from the Middle East, at The Grenville Room—it’s a big win for ethical fashion to be part of this prestigious exhibition,” says Fashion ComPassion founder, Ayesha Mustafa.
As one of the world’s most prestigious centers celebrating human history and culture, The British Museum will be holding its Hajj Exhibition from 26th January to 15th April of 2012. The exhibition aims to educate a global audience on the significance and history of the Islamic pilgrimage of Hajj, allowing non-Muslims to explore the faith visually through artwork, textiles and manuscripts dating back to the time of the Prophet Muhammad in the 7th century A.D.
Palestyle’s collection can proudly be found on our website and together promoting education, employment and self-sustainability for marginalized women in war-stricken societies, it is a monumental achievement for both Fashion ComPassion and Palestyle to be recognized in the British Museum’s exhibition.
We hope you have the chance to visit our display in the Grenville Room!
