We are pleased to announce that HalimaAden will be joining us on the Runway at Modest Fashion Festival, London on 21st October 2017.
Halima Aden is the 20-year-old model who took the fashion world by storm this spring. The Somali-American refugee was the first contestant to compete in her Miss USA state pageant in a hijab and burkini. After garnering international media attention from the pageant for staying true to herself and her interpretation of her Muslim faith, she was summoned to New York by fashion industry icon, Carine Roitfeld. She landed the cover of CR Fashion Book Issue 10 after her first professional photo shoot. Shortly afterwards, Halima was signed by IMG Models for worldwide representation and walked in New York and Milan Fashion Weeks for designers such as Kanye West, Alberta Ferretti, and Max Mara. This summer she covered both VOGUE Arabiaand ALLURE. Recently, she has been featured in campaigns for the Modist, American Eagle Outfitters, and Nike.
