In her Instagram stories, Halima talked about how the fashion industry hasn’t still warmed up to the idea of seeing a hijabi model and how their ideas of representing a hijab are quite twisted and compromised. The 23-year-old model who was recognised by the biggest of the brands all over the world took to her Instagram stories on Wednesday and said that people in the fashion industry never seemed to be doing justice with her hijab and lacked stylists who could understand that wearing a hijab didn’t just mean covering head.

In her Instagram stories, she wrote how she made mistakes by giving in to the ruched standards of the industry because she wanted to get comfortable and be accepted. “I can only blame myself for caring more about opportunity than what was actually at stake. I blame myself for being naïve and rebellious, but also the lack of Muslim women stylists in the industry. I had to make these mistakes to be the role model you trust. We need to have these conversations to truly change the system,” she wrote.

Halima explained that the lockdown had given her a break from work and it was during this time that she reflected on her lifestyle. She also spoke on social media about a few projects that she deeply regrets working for.

During her four years journey in the fashion world, she also encountered people and brands that were supporting the real causes and being mindful of the right representation of the persecuted communities and Halima shouted out to those in one of her other posts.
