How has the global fashion market impacted your perspective on modest fashion?
I think about the passing of Virgil Abloh. I reflect on his work a lot. I wish I knew and learned more about him before. I was watching his videos and talks the other day and I found it so awe-inspiring. Abloh said “You just being you is different”. He mentioned how fashion doesn’t need to be avant garde. I love how Abloh incorporated black culture in his shows. For example, he had Saul Williams, a poet in one of his shows. For me, wearing jilbab is silent resistance. Wearing a jilbab is already a statement. When I walk out wearing a jilbab, I don’t care what others think; I don’t need to change myself.
