The current mood of the global fashion industry is one of increasing inclusivity. While it would be fair to argue that this has been a long time coming, the time really is now. And that’s something to celebrate.
Not only did 2017 begin with IMG Models signing Vogue Arabia cover star Halima Aden, Storm Model Management (Kate Moss’ first agency) has just signed its first hijab-wearing model, Shahira Yusuf.
In an exclusive interview with Vogue.me, Yusuf reflected, “It’s up to the fashion industry to create more opportunities for models like me.
There is a huge modest fashion market, and more companies are starting to release modest fashion clothing lines.”
