Today, I introduce to you a Real Life Hijabi Couture Fashionista, the very lovely Sister Zakkiyah. When I saw this picture all I could say was: "WOW! Now that's how you wear a hat with hijab!". Isn't she just gorgeous? That's my Lil' Homie Zakkiyah who I wrote about here. If you missed that blog, I wrote about how she so generously showed up at my house with the beautiful hijab I have on in that picture. Blue was her favorite color way back then. Then, I came into her life and, well, added a little more color! (In more ways than one.) When I first saw this picture, I hadn't realized that she's wearing a Hijabi Couture hijab I gave her. She is such a lovely sister, an ideal muslima in every sense of the word. She studies the deen more than any sister I have ever known, visits the sick and does all that she can to help others. Honestly, the beauty that you see here, radiates from the inside out and I wanted to share her with you. I'd also like to ask you to say a prayer for her because she is recovering from surgery.
When I first saw the fabric below, I thought of her because she loves to tie-die. So, I added it to last year's collection, with her in mind. In that collection, I used the fabric for that kaftan and the Safiya tunic, which you can find here. She was my first customer to add it to her collection. So, I gave her the hijab above to compliment this kaftan. I have to say, I think she wears them fabulously.
