When a dress maker in Dubai decides to wear a hijab, how do you make sure it fits?
A woman wearing a hijab in Dubai is more likely to get a “good” or “average” answer, according to a new survey conducted by a Dubai dress designer.
In the survey, nearly half of women polled said they would wear a scarf, while less than a quarter said they’d wear a full-length hijab.
The survey also found that the number of hijab-wearing women has grown since last year, with a record 442,000 women in the country.
The new findings, released Friday, come on the heels of a recent study released by the Dubai Economic Development Organization, which found that a whopping 80 percent of the country’s women wear the hijab.
