Plans To Hold Islamic Fashion Charity Show In Monte Carlo
KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 29 (Bernama) -- Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, wife of the prime minister, said today she planned to organise an Islamic Fashion charity show in Monte Carlo next August.
She said she would seek the cooperation of the King and Queen of Sweden to hold the show as she was informed by the royal couple that they had many friends who liked to contribute to such charity programmes.
Rosmah had an audience with King Carl XVI Gustaf Folke and Queen Silvia Renate Sommerlath of Sweden last year.
"Through fashion, we want those who have yet to fully understand Islam to know that Islam is moderate and progressive. We will introduce this concept to the world and show that Islam is neither conservative, aggressive nor vicious.
"By looking at Islamic fashion, the world will know that Muslims can also have an open mind as long as it does not contravene Islamic teachings," she told a news conference after World Scout Foundation chief executive officer John Geoghegan called on her at the prime minister's residence, here.
Rosmah said, however, that it was too early to announce the details of the proposed charity show.
