To solve this problem, first we have to look at large in the world of Islam. Islam in Malaysia is Sunni. Islam in Indonesia is Sunni too. This is where the first 2 Islamic Fashion Festivals started and end up without no controversy attached to the festivals.
When planning event always look at a clear cut concept, the choice of venue and logistics involved
There are three mistakes attached to the Monaco Festival;
1- on the protocol side- is it proper to put the PM's Spouse as the Head Of The Committee instead of Honorary Chairperson with the specific function to grace the event, which eventually give rise to character assasination of the person
2-second on the concept- what is safely termed Islamic Fashion
3- third on the choice of venue. Lebanon, Istanbul(Turkey) or even Dubai should have been a better venue because these are the fashion capital of Islamic fashion. Since Islam is widely practiced here, there will be no issue of compromising the costumes to suit the crowd . Furtermore, these venues also received wide coverage in the media..Al Jazeera, CNN to name a few have headquarters here.
a-What is the acceptable definitions for Islamic Fashions worldwide
b-Are there differences in what is termed "aurat" within Islam's 4 main religious sect/mazhab such as Hambali, Syafie, Hanafi and Maliki
d-Who are authorise to stamp approvals the criteria on Islamic Fashion-shall the syariah panel be set up for these purpose borrowing from experience in Islamic Financing?
