Spirituality & Style: London to Princeton and beyond

“Can faithful shoppers be shoppers of faith? How does religion relate to fashion? Can spirituality have style? Should the fashion industry respond to people who want to express their faith and spirituality through their clothes?”

altM joined with the Princeton Muslim Life Program and Faith & Fashion from London College of Fashion to bring these discussions to you. And if you don’t live in New Jersey, that’s what we’re here for! Join us by video and by podcast to tap into these fascinating conversations being held by Muslim women today.
