How has your relationship with fashion changed this year?
2020 has been a challenging year so far, but it hasn’t slowed down my everlasting love for looking my best. Recently, though, I have noticed I’m gravitating towards softer, more comfortable pieces as opposed to structured ones.

How has your background and upbringing influenced your style?
Fashion is an expression of my art, culture, and mood. I’m incredibly minimalistic in my personal wardrobe, but I love to get on set and be styled in pieces I wouldn’t normally reach for. I feel like a different person in every look, but my hijab makes me who I am.
