Will they allow their employees to wear the burqa or niqab next?
Westpac has called in fashion ­queen Carla Zampatti to design a corporate hijab as the bank joins a growing trend to expand workwear to accommodate Muslim headgear.

The Zampatti design is ­expected to be incorporated into the new uniform collection next April. Westpac joins other major corporates, including the Commonwealth Bank and Optus, in including the hijab in staff ­uniforms.

London’s Metropolitan Police Force last week introduced the headscarf as part of its official uniform in a bid to create a more diverse force and to encourage women from Muslim communities to join its ranks.

Westpac’s hijab will include the bank’s logo and is part of a push to ensure diversity and ­inclusiveness in the workplace.

“As part of our new corporate wardrobe, we’ve designed a navy-blue hijab with a charcoal Westpac ‘W’ logo which blends beautifully with the broader uniform,” a Westpac spokeswoman said. “This is another way we can show our support for our people and ensure they feel great at work.’’

There is little presence of own-brand or stylised hijabs in the ­public sector.

The Australian Federal Police and state police forces do not have custom hijabs for Muslim officers.

A spokeswoman for the AFP said governance allowed for uniformed members to request to wear a religious headdress on a case-by-case basis.

While NSW Police Force had a similar requirement, Victoria Police said it provided headdress items in corporate colours to its employees, including the Jewish yarmulke and Sikh ­turban.

The turban is accompanied by the police badge and chequered band.

Connie Wehbe, who works at Westpac’s Bankstown branch in Sydney, welcomed the inclusion of a ­stylised hijab.

“I enjoy wearing a hijab to work as it helps others understand my culture and get to know me better,” she said.

“The new branded hijabs will show Westpac recognises and ­accepts different cultures and I’m looking forward to wearing it as part of my uniform.”

Tarik Houchar, the owner of Australian company and leading international brand Hijab House, applauded Westpac for taking “the step to include the hijab in their uniform, considering ­hijabs in most company uniforms are usually dishevelled and mismatched”.

“There may be some backlash, but people must understand that the hijab is just a simple piece of cloth, and it shouldn’t be feared or misinterpreted. Westpac just wants its teams to look more ­cohesive,” he said.

  1. Shame on Westpac and others for promoting islam on their premises.
    No, wearing a hijab to work does not help ‘others’ (read infidel) understand your islamic culture and help get to know you better. I would avoid you like the plague as I object to you telling me in a non discreet way that you have submitted to Allah and are in my face with your political ideology. Problem is it’s becoming quite the cool trendy thing to do and useful infidel idiots even partake in try a hijab day. They don’t seem to understand many women are killed for not wearng these rags and are made to do so under duress. Recent Iran facebook pics show the joy when women took to posting themselves without the compulsory hijab.

  2. “I enjoy wearing a hijab to work as it helps others understand my culture and get to know me better,” she said.

    Is it culture or religion.

    She should say religion( not culture) Culture does not allow you to wear what you want.It has to be religion.

  3. Great, so it’s open slather now. I can start wearing an SS uniform to work . They are 1000% more stylish than any burqa, hejab, etc, designed as they were by Hugo Boss explicitly for the Wehrmacht.

    To enable the thick shits to get an idea of how offensive their politically adopted muslim clothing is, how about wearing clothes made from Israeli flags wherever muslims frequent? That would get their little minds ticking over.

  4. prophet mohamud is not a founder of islam!
    Islam is not religion!
    Mohamud is a Prophet of Terrorist!
    Islam is a war& Invading Technic used by Terrorist mohamud to identify the people!
    Koran is not word of god! not written by mohamud but it is prepared by Arabians one of the best litrature scalars in the world after mohamud death in 700AD!
    Arabians are fooling world
    Arabians are selfish people who want to dominate world in the name of religion and violence and with deadly culture!

  5. Muslimas are being suckered in. It is Haram to wear any Kuffer designed clothing. All color except dark is forbidden to women. They are stepping over the line into Apostasy ! (I love it, brilliant)
