It's Official! Halima Aden Is Coming to Australian Fashion Week
Yes, you read that correctly . . . Halima Aden is set to arrive in Sydney for Australian Fashion Week. IMG confirmed today that the 21-year-old model and social activist will attend the closing show of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia — Carla Zampatti — as well as the official MBFWA closing party, hosted by Huawei, at Bondi's iconic Icebergs Dining Room & Bar.
Halima may be in the early stages of her fashion career, but she's well and truly on track to become the first-ever hijabi supermodel. This year alone, she made headlines across the world as the first-ever hijabi model to grace the pages of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue, wearing both a head scarf and burkini. And just last month, she launched a collection of turbans and head scarves in collaboration with Modanisa. Impressive is an understatement.
