I recently got a chance to talk to Brooklyn-based designer, Nailah Lymus, about hew newest venture…the launch of the first modeling agency exclusively representing Muslim female fashion models. Yes, I said Muslim models.
Nailah talked to me about setting the record straight about Muslim women, their role in the fashion industry and of course how they are viewed in the non-Islamic world.
Check out this sneak peek from a recent shoot for the UNDERWRAPS site and my article on the Examiner (click the picture to view the article).
I will be attending the official launch for the agency during New York Fashion Week and will be bringing more news about UNDERWRAPS as part of event recaps. Untile then….ENJOY!
