American Eagle hijabs launched earlier this month, and they sold out in a mere two weeks. The company created a series of new ads, which debuted on Instagram and were totally unretouched. It featured Muslim model Halima Aden wearing a hijab with her stunning layered look for fall.
The hijab is for sale for $19.95 on American Eagle’s website. Halima featured in Vogue Arabia in May, and stated
“Every little girl deserves to see a role model that’s dressed like her, resembles her, or even has the same characteristics as her. I think beauty is for everyone and I think everyone can look beautiful, you just have to be confident.”
Halima was born in a refugee camp in Kenya and moved to the United States when she was 6. She is now the industry’s most sought-after models and competed in the 2016 Miss Minnesota USA pageant in a burkini and hijab. 👐
Halima Aden is truly an inspiration and all we want to say is – keep doing you! 💙
