It is stated by the model Halima Aden that she will quit the fashion industry because the industry is forcing her to compromise on her religious beliefs.
The model Halima is a Somali American fashion model. She is well known for being the first hijabi woman in the Miss Minnesota USA pageant.
Model Halima Aden was hailed because she was the first model who wore a hijab and did a walk for major fashion labels like Kanye Wests Yeezy. Her series of images were posted on social media, where she had lost touch with who she really is.
She wrote on Instagram stories that The only person to be blamed was herself because she cared more about the opportunity than what was actually at stake.
A post was shared by the model of herself in a campaign for Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty. The center said that Rihanna, let me wear the hijab I bought to set. She further noted that The real Halima is the girl she would be returning towards.
It was said by Aden that the industry is the one to be blamed for the lack of Muslim Women stylists because it has led to very little understanding of the fashion industry.
Aden has also written about feeling the most modest fashion model pressure in her other social media posts.
In 2016, Aden shot to fame following her turn in the Miss USA beauty pageant after she caught the attention of the fashion editor Carine Roitfeld. She signed to the Global Modelling Agency IMG, and at New York fashion week, she made her first debut where she walked for Kanye West Yeezy and Maxmara.
Halima set conversations about fashion and modesty eighteen months ago after becoming the first headscarf-wearing model to grace the cover.
