In 2013, American photographer and musician Langston Hues began photographing modest fashion enthusiasts in his hometown of Detroit, Michigan. As his project to capture “the ever-growing, erupting culture of modest street style” gained followers, it grew organically, and people around the world began requesting that Hues visit their city to photograph them. Hues explains, “The genre of Muslim fashion has opened the door to ending stereotypes about Muslims . . . It’s humanizing and shows the diversity of their style. Modest style is a self-expression and comes in many colors and can be defined in many ways.”

It is credited Courtesy of Langston Hues.
