For women who dress conservatively, Israel has launched a Modest Fashion Day.

Local designers and models gathered in Jerusalem last Thursday for a fashion show that catered specifically to Orthodox Jewish women — and hundreds of humbled fashionistas attended to witness the work walk down the runway.

“People are looking in our direction now to find that modest kind of look, which is very interesting to see,” Jewish stylist Miri Beillin told Reuters. “We are working for this amazing day, fashion modesty, which is a complete, amazing experience for us as religious women.”
