New York's Parsons' alumnus wins American Hijab Contest

May '13
Hijab, the quintessential headscarf worn by Muslim women, got an American style twist at the recently concluded American Hijab Contest, which showcased a range of highly innovative yet modest head gears by various amateurs as well as professional designers.
 
Held in Chicago, the contest’s winning ensemble was an A-lined camel coloured Japanese organic cotton quilted shirtdress, a turtleneck, knitted hat and slim pants, designed by the New York-based Fashion Institute of Technology graduate Sarah Musa, who took inspiration from the clean, streamlined American sportswear for her creation.
 
In addition to the cross cultural (half-Christian and half-Muslim) technical designer Musa, Yasmeen Sabir won the style contest segment for non-designers for her tropical headscarf paired with a coral motorcycle jacket and yellow cardigan.
 
The competition was judged by a panel of high-profile industry professionals, including Parsons’ professor Shireen Soliman and Kanye West collaborator Rhymefest. 
 
The inaugural edition of the contest was organized by the human rights attorney and fashionista Shaz Kaiseruddin to promote the message of peace and tolerance in the United States.
