To (Un)veil and Envision is a study of Muslim identity construction through dress. Through photographs, drawings and interviews the project shed light on how life is like for young Muslim girls living in global cities in late modernity, specifically focusing on native Danish girls who have converted to Islam. The work takes as a starting point that fashion and clothing is to be viewed as an important social sphere of identity construction, and the project seeks to highlight how fashion-practices provide a unique avenue for metaphoric self-expression and re-negotiation of the discursive debates around Islamic dress.
