Now Pakistan is one of the world's Muslim fashion centers. Muslim fashion has been deemed too rigid and outdated in the past. In line with technological advances and modernization, it is an important fashion and trade stage in the last two decades. Nowadays, Muslim  fashion's meaning and position are linked to requirements of religious doctrine and part of Pakistan's pattern of mode that women can quickly enter. This study aims to establish how women's self-image is viewed when wearing Muslim and other women who
wear Muslim. This study gathered data from 490 women in Pakistan aged between 20-40 years using openended questionnaires to collect data using quantitative methods. After a content analysis, the answers of the subjects are tabulated. Other Muslim wearers are considered to be beautiful, proud, and religious. Overall, the use of Muslim wear influences self-image development. And it also affects how other women perceive their image. However, these two things are not always in line, although they obtain the same positive credit.
