About "Striving For Modesty"
Founded in March 2015-Chicago, IL, USA
Although there are a plethora of clothing stores aimed at muslim women, Striving for modesty seeks to be the modest clothing store of your choice.
Our aim is to provide an array of exclusive and luxurious items that are modest and mafe from great quality fabrics. We uphold the belief that all muslim women should observe hijab around Non-Mahrams by wearing a Jilbabs and Abayas.
We also understand the importance of being comfortable in your jilbab, making our comfortable tunics, Skirts and Dresses ideal. White we are obligated to cover around Non-Mahrams, we are permitted to uncover around women, there is still a level of modesty required.
For this reason, we carry a small selection aimed for those women-only events.
Yes, Striving for modesty is created for muslim women but we seek to clothe all women who desire a modest wardrobe regardless of their faith.
Meet The Founder
Aminat odunewu-seese is the founder and owner of Striving For Modesty. Originally from lagos, nigeria but raised in chicago, aminat noticed how difficult it was to find modest clothes that fitted properly on women who were tall and slim as well as the rarity of finding actual jilbabs in the us. This realization coupled with her natural entrepreneurial spirit is what gave birth to striving for modesty. Thankfully, she didn't want to only cater to tall or slim women but women of all body times. This is why sfm carries petite, long and plus sizes. Everyone is served!
"I want women to feel comfortable and beautiful while remaining modest. I want to help all women uphold the tenets of modesty and hijab that we're taught about in the Qur'an and Sunnah.
