CHANGE UNIVERSE: Magazine Jewels

Nigab Chic

burqa , also known as chadri in Central Asia is an enveloping outer garment worn by women in some Islamic traditions to cover their bodies when in public.

The face-veil portion is usually a rectangular piece of semi-transparent cloth whose top side is sewn to corresponding portion of the head-scarf, so that the veil hangs down loose from the scarf, and it can be turned up if the woman wishes to reveal her face (otherwise thewhole face would be covered). In other cases, the niqb part can be a side-attached cloth that covers the face below the eyes’ region.

Burqa is an Arabized Persian word of purda  meaning curtain and veil, which have the same meaning in Persian.

If a woman cannot show her face for political reason, she can still express herself by wearing an attractive  adornment making thus a statement and at the same time be totally politically correct like the muslim woman in the picture above. There you go. Jewels are super useful, didn’t I say it before?
