Modest and Stylish: Sistars repin’ the veil!

Veil sistars

Sara Shamsavari’s internationally acclaimed LONDON VEIL/PARIS VEIL/NYC VEIL exhibition, not only showcases striking individual personality, style and beauty of Muslim women wearing the hijab, but we were also treated to having a few of the women from Sara’s portraits join us at the preview exhibition on Monday 2nd Nov at Library, Convent Garden!

I took the opportunity to ask the women repin’ various hijab styles, about their fashion and style and influence…

Samah – Makeup artist

“My style varies. This (headwrap) was really easy to do. I simply tied a knot at the front, twisted the material to one side, and secured it at the back.” – Amina @minashenna

Ahlam – Modeststars

Modest sistars
“Modestsistars started out as a burning passion to showcase the strong relationship that two sisters wanted to nurture through finding common interests. By this we wanted to create a bond between ourselves and the people. It has been a journey filled with style, faith, makeup and lots of fun.” – Ahlam @modestsistars
