Meet Hijarbie, the latest style icon on Instagram who is using her mini fashion to inspire girls all around the world to believe they are beautiful.
Recently Mattel stepped into the future and released diverse barbies and now Hijarbie creater, Haneefah Adam, is taking it one step further and calling on the multinational toy manufacturing company to represent the millions of Muslim girls around the world who play with the doll.
Taking inspiration from the @barbiestyle Instagram account, Hanneefah presents Barbie dressed in modest fashion.
“It got me thinking about how I’d actually like to see a doll dressed up like I would have — covered up.”
“Hijarbie is featured wearing a ton of modest, yet fashionable outfits, complete with matching hijabs, often side-by-side with the same outfit in real life,” she told Mic.
Creating all the hijabs and dresses herself, the 24-year-old designer for Nigeria says she is not only to show how beautiful and trendy modest style can be, but is trying to show girls who may wear a hijab themselves that they are no less beautiful or special than Barbie herself.
On top of creating Hijarbie and designer for her pint-sized model, Haneefah is launching her own modest dress and hijab line called Hanie.
