Couture Turbans and Hijabs
The couture turban from Nerida Fraiman is a stunning statement to your ensemble. Stylish, sophisticated, versatile and imminently wearable a fashion turban is unlike any other type of hair wrap.
While the turban has been around for centuries it’s only in the past 100 years that it has come into its own as a fashion accessory when movie stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood such as Greta Garbo, and later Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor, embraced the turban as a statement accessory. And it continues to grace the heads of celebrities and stars including Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Lopez.
The turban has been worn by men and women throughout the ages, the simplest headwear – cotton or silk fabric wrapped in myriad ways which protected from the sun and conferred identity, social standing, tribe or heritage across continents and climatic zones.
Later Muslim women adapted the turban, to a more scaled-back version than the often towering and elaborate versions worn by Muslim men and it has been both a religious and fashion staple of the Islamic world ever since.
Indications are that the turban first arrived in Europe in the 17th century. While it never caught on with men, European women began to experiment with it and by the latter part of the 18th century, the fashion turban was in vogue.
Today it occupies a unique niche in the pantheon of world fashion.
The Ultimate Fashion Accessory
The allure of the turban is almost as mysterious as its origins. It’s simple yet complex, exotic yet practical. Fabulously versatile, it can be worn with everything from a glamorous ball gown to a smart pants suit to a dress down t-shirt from season to season.
The great Hollywood screen icons of the 1930s are largely responsible for bringing the fashion turban out of the shadows and into the mainstream, where its popularity has waxed and waned ever since. Today, fashion designer/milliner Nerida Fraiman and her team create beautiful couture turbans and hijabs in a rainbow of colours, fabrics and styles to be worn to work, parties, weddings, funerals, graduations and every other special occasion all hand made with love in London.
About the Hijab
More than a simple hair wrap or a component of hat fashion as a whole, Nerida’s couture hijabs are modern expressions of timeless principles that also happen to be comfortable, durable and universal in their applicability.
The hijab and the turban have travelled parallel roads to prominence. Associated today with Muslim women, the hijab actually predates Islam, veiling the head as a way to indicate social standing and modesty. Clients of Nerida Fraiman’s hijabs and turbans include elegant women all over the world seeking stylish modesty as well as fashionistas looking for eye catching statement headwear.
The hijab is ubiquitous in Muslim communities the world over, an indispensable component of modest fashion. From an aesthetic perspective, the hijab provides the milliner with a multitude of expressive possibilities incorporating line, colour, texture and volume. It is these qualities that Nerida Fraiman masterfully crafts in her bespoke and ready to wear couture hijabs.
Ready to Wear or Bespoke
Luxury ready to wear turbans and hijabs from fashion industry luminary Nerida Fraiman are available at fine department stores the world over. Nerida also offers a bespoke service online or in person at her London atelier for those who desire a one of a kind design or wish to match an outfit or seek to embellish one of our existing ready to wear creations.
