What is thought to be the first-ever international conference to showcase the latest trends in Muslim women's fashion is taking place in Kuala Lumpur later this year.

Speaking at a press conference in the city on Tuesday, Islamic Da'wah Foundation Malaysia general manager (operations), Dr Abdul Ghani Mohamad, said the theme of the conference is 'Elegance in Modesty.'

He added that the conference would be a "perfect meeting place for local and international fashion designers, manufacturers, retailers and wholesalers."

The event is being organised by the Muslim Women's Consultative Council Malaysia (MWCCM) on 2-3 December at the Istana Hotel.
