Iranian shopkeepers were warned not to use mannequins without head scarves or which exposed body curves, the official Iranian news agency reported on Tuesday. "Using unusual mannequins exposing the body curves and with the heads without Hijabs [Muslim veil] are prohibited to be used in the shops," IRNA quoted a statement issued by the Islamic republic's moral security police in charge of Islamic dress codes. "Both showing necktie and bow tie behind the windows ... and [the] selling [of] women's underwear by men are prohibited," the Iranian police said in the statement.
