I've often been told 'aren't you a little overdressed?' and I wonder why it would matter. As Oscar Wilde said: "You can't be overdressed or overeducated".

A big favourite of mine is London based label Elenany. Sarah Elenany, is behind the brand, and draws on her Palestinian and Egyptian heritage to produce contemporary clothing for young people. The designer started the label in 2009 as she felt there was nothing at the time providing stylish attire for young Muslims.
