Here's a photo gallery showcasing fashion from around the Muslim world. Photos feature fashion from Arab countries, the Middle East, Europe, South Asia and South East Asia, and Africa.

Just as Muslims across the world aren't alike, Muslim fashion isn't alike. The photos illustrate some modern-day fashion and some traditional dress.

Looking at the photos, it's easy to see how Muslim fashions, while distinct, all lend to one and other.

For example, the Pakistani dress has evolved, drawing inspiration from the Arab and Persian world. The Pakistani shalwar kameez of the past few years much resembles the traditional Afghani dress or the Arab abaya, with the newly fashionable long, flowy lengths.

In modern-day Iran, see how the highly fashionable women walk the delicate balance between high fashion and modest dressing.

Pakistani shalwar kameez tends to be longer and flowier than its Indian counterpart. While once the two styles were the same, Pakistan has moved in the direction of long, Arab-inspired tunics with skinny pants.
