Our Changemaker Tour Has Kicked Off!
Posted on Apr 24, 2019
Our Haute Hijab Changemakers Tour has officially begun!!
At Haute Hijab, we’re passionate about many things, but nothing more than creating a world where every single woman feels comfortable and confident! We’re on a mission to help Muslim women find their true purpose in life and hone their talents to create some good in this world.
To do this, we’re embarking on the HH Changemaker Tour. We are essentially touring the country, meeting with you guys - our HH family - and having some much-needed girl talk together. We’ll also have samples of all our products in tow, giving you an opportunity to experience them for yourselves.
This past weekend, April 20th, we kicked off the tour at one of our dear friend’s (and HH Diamond Member) house in Princeton, NJ. Our host, Omayma, was the most gracious host we could have ever imagined. She not only opened up her home to us and all of our guests, but she and her cousin Reem also went above and beyond decorating and making sure everyone felt happy and comfortable. And, their husbands even set up a valet parking station ... We know - the CUTEST!
We kicked off the event with an amazing soulful talk by our very own Melanie. She spoke about finding our purpose and our place in this world, regardless of the expectations placed upon us, and had great heart-to-heart conversations with our guests afterward. We also partnered with the talented Alaa from Alaa’s Pantry, who provided some delicious hors d’ oeuvres. She also gave us our very own lesson on how to make one of her delicious recipes! Let’s just say I’m still craving those chipotle beef sliders! Check out her blog (linked above) for recipes to everything she made!
Later, our guests got to play with all our hijabs (including the Luxury Collection) and test them out for themselves. We ate, played, talked and shopped. Sounds like a recipe for the ideal girls’ day, if you ask us!
At the end of the event, Omayma and Reem surprised us with a cake and a beautiful plaque for our new office! Omayma spoke about how much Haute Hijab means to her, as a Muslim woman, and how proud she was of everything we're working towards. We can't begin to tell you how touched we were by their sweet gesture and their gift will forever sit in our office.
Here are some pictures from the event!
