Nice Jewish Girl Donna Karan Creates Ramadan Fashions Especially for the Uber-Lucrative Islamic Market

An L.A. fashion writer tells Ceeb radio host Shad that she has mixed feelings about the effort. Sure, it could help "normalize" the way non-Muslims view Muslims (although it's not clear how that would work exactly, given that we're talking about chicks' clothing and not about, say, doing away with the holy war). The drawback here, says the writer, is that commercializing Ramadan could potentially detract from the month's holiness. Shad can see where the fashionista is coming from since, as he tells listeners, he too is no fan of "market-driven" solutions. (The Ceeb ethos in brief: Why depend on the market when you can depend on the government?)
