Barrier-breaking, hijab-wearing model Halima Aden is lensed by Sebastian Kim in a selection of modest ensembles styled by Katie Mossman. The ensembles will be featured at San Francisco's de Young Museum this fall. The six-month-long exhibition called 'Contemporary Muslim Fashions' explores “the complex and diverse nature of Muslim fashion and current modest dress codes" from many well-known designers including Yves Saint Laurent and Dolce & Gabbana and Franco-Algerian designer Faiza Bouguessa, known for his high-end abayas.

Another section of the show running from September 22-January 6, 2019 is dedicated to photography and film. It will include socially charged artworks by artists such as Wesaam Al-Badry, Rania Matar, Hassan Hajjaj, and Shirin Neshat. Click here for more information.
