Muslim German designer combines fashion with faith
Melih Kesmen began his Styleislam project three years ago, as the scandal raged over caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed printed in a Danish newspaper. He wanted to respond peacefully, in a creative and productive way, so he made a T-shirt printed with the slogan "I Love My Prophet."
So many people literally wanted to buy the shirt off of his back that Kesmen, who is trained as a graphic designer, recognized the untapped market for trendy clothes with a Muslim message. COOL caught up with him to hear the tricks of his trade.
