Modest Fashion in UK Women’s Working Life: A report for employers, HR professionals, religious organisations, and policymakers, by Kristin Aune, Reina Lewis & Lina Molokotos-Liederman

Free to download, the two reports reveal findings from 65 interviews with women working in faith-based organisations in the UK, with women travelling to Saudi Arabia for work, and with fashion and HR professionals and mediators working in the UK and the Gulf. They offer insights into a rarely focused on sector of women’s experience of fashion at work and provide recommendations for fashion and the creative industries as well as employers, HR and diversity practitioners, religious organisations and policymakers. The reports were published as part of the project Modest Fashion in UK Women’s Working Life, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and conducted at the London College of Fashion (University of the Arts London) and the Centre for Trust, Peace & Social Relations (Coventry University).
