Happy Friday & Jummah Mubarak! There are so many positive things happening with Muslim Women, Black women, Hispanic Women, Native American Women, Asian... all kinds of women that were basically implausible, seemingly impossible 10 years ago and even 5 years ago. So when you think about what you want to see happen in this world and in your life 10 friggin X it and keep going in that direction. Let it be that when the time comes you’re SO ready ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cause guess what, it made no sense that a hijabi, modestly dressed African Muslim woman would grace the cover of Vogue 10 years ago but a year ago it did & she did. @Halima ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So many Muslima models, mostly in beauty and it makes sense because with hair covered people focus more on your face. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Didn't seem plausible that another Somali woman, former refugee also in hijab would become a Congresswoman but she did and got sworn in on the Holy Quran @ilhanmn #ilhanomar#116congress ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2 Native American women 1sts in Congress @DebforCongressNM @ShariceForCongress Muslim Journalists @MalikaB Interior Designers @SaudahSaleemInteriors Fashion designers Lots of modest fashion brands, a whole movement- so much so there's the Contemporary Muslim fashion exhibit traveling from California to Germany and it's an amazing exhibit that I’m a part of. See the post of my profile page. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A Muslima hijabi Olympian fencer @IbtihajMuhammad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #meghanmarkle a dutchess/ princess Ava DuVernay @Ava - the 1st black woman to create a film with an over $100,000,000 budget ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I mean, I don't mean to spill the tea in one post about everything that's happening in the world with women who've been marginalized so this is part one and I’ll post again about this because we all need reminders, me included. Check my stories for some subtext. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy
Until now, no major museum in the world has dedicated a space to exploring the full scope of Muslim fashion. The #contemporarymuslimfashions exhibit at the @deyoungmuseum showcased a richly diverse and global range of Muslim styles. #contemporarymuslimfashions was not only an exhibition but also a political statement, one that provides support for multicultural tolerance and understanding while challenging stereotypes about Muslim culture. I am humbled and honored to have advised on such an important exhibition. Thank you to all who came out and supported! If you went, what was your favorite part of the exhibit?
As the exhibition comes to an end @deyoungmuseum ‘Contemporary Muslim Fashions ‘ thank you for the wonderful experience. It’s been a groundbreaking exhibition, featured amongst other incredible designers. Picture from the lovely article @artnews by Cynthia Durcanin. Now the exhibition will tour to @museumangewandtekunst in Frankfurt from April 4th - September 15th 2019 ⚡️ Dress: @rebeccaelizabethkellett Collar: @velveteccentric Sunglasses: @annakarinkarlssoneyewear . . . . . . . . . #exhibition#contemporarymuslimfashions#deyoungmuseum#dress#style#futuristicfashion#press#muslimfashion#design
