Meet Halima Aden, the Hijab Wearing Yeezy Model Out to Change Fashion


After Kanye West's somewhat disastrous NYFW show back in September 2016, in which models collapsed and fashion editors complained about the boiling heat, many had sworn off attending another Yeezy show.

Somali-American model Halima Aden wore a hijab as she modeled a huge fur coat. She made headlines past year when she became the first Miss Minnesota USA contestant to compete wearing a hijhab and a "burkini". "I wanted to spread a positive message about beauty and diversity, and to show other young Muslim women that there is room for them".

When the show was over, Kanye declined to grace the runway and take a bow, leaving some attendees wondering if he even showed up to the presentation.

Halima Aden walked the catwalk in a hijab.

Australian Catholics 'hang their heads in shame' at scale of abuse
Among the perpetrators, 32% were religious brothers , 30% were priests, and 29% were lay people, with religious sisters at 5%. Mr Sullivan told Sky News the church leadership must 'step up'. "Every child that's damaged, there is a ripple effect".

For one, she made history as the first hijab-wearing model ever to be signed to modelling agency giant IMG.

Aden was born in a Kenyan refugee camp and is now a United States citizen. (The clothes have) a little bit more focus than sometimes we've seen from him.

Upon her arrival to the east coast, Kim was presented with a small bouquet of roses from an adoring fan after leaving dinner. "Sometimes he's either doing [music] or he's staying super fashion, so it's hard to say", she said, before shouting after a friend - "Taco!"

Kim Kardashian shared a bunch of grainy, personal photos from her recent family vacation to Costa Rica on her website, and we've never seen so much T&A in our lives! She has lived in St. Cloud for the majority of her young life, and is a USA citizen. She also landed a shoot with CR Fashion Book. She made the big announcement on the same day as the Yeezy show, captioning a post on her Instagram saying, "I signed with the top modeling agency in the WORLD and still wore my hijab as my crown". Case in point: After CFDA president Stephen Kolb publicly scolded Kanye for booking his show during Marchesa's official time slot, the Adidas collaborator phoned Kolb to apologize and work out a new, more considerate start time (Wednesday at 3 p.m.).
