How is it already 2020? As we ready ourselves for what is inevitably going to be a difficult election cycle, I find myself thinking quite a bit about the concept of solidarity with one another. It is so important to uplift ourselves and each other in the midst of all the negativity around us in authentic and non-performative ways.
In the many years I’ve worked for Haute Hijab, my favorite part of the job hasn’t changed: It’s seeing what happens to members of our community when they find a hijab that’s just right for them. Maybe it’s the perfect neutral they’ve been looking for or a new fabric they didn’t know they loved; a bold pop of color they hadn’t tried yet or a power print that makes them feel amazing!
In a world that is so often unkind to Muslims, I have so much admiration and respect for the women who get up every day and are unafraid to tell the world exactly who they are. To be in a position to help make that as effortless and comfortable as possible is an honor that I take seriously. It’s where I get the motivation to get up and go to work every day.
A great piece of clothing can make you feel powerful, confident, prepared for whatever the day throws at you. And, I can only imagine how much more potent that is when that garment relates so deeply to your faith and your identity. It seems so simple, but it’s actually pretty revolutionary.
