COPENHAGEN FASHION WEEK OUTFIT...

February 17, 2017



Wow...it's been a REALLY long time, since I posted an outfit on the blog. I made up my mind to stick with mommy and interior blogging soon after we moved back to Denmark, since I found that having people taking pictures of me was very selfcentered and I wanted to use all attention on Adam and interior design. I also didn't have anyone to take the photos, since I always had to twist my husband's arm to take the pictures...So it's just a lot easier to concentrate on Adam and our home - I can take the photos myself and I really never have to think too much about what to wear...

I know I lost followers, especially on Instagram, since a lot was following because of my fashion posts, but some stuck with me and after a break I'll be doing some outfits again once in a while. To be honest I feel we need more hijabis in Denmark and Scandinavia in general to share our style, so that brands, magazines etc. don't continue to ignore us. So I kind of feel obligated to do fashion and represent.

I was on the news recently taking about modest fashion and hijabis, because the rest of the world seem to have noticed that not only is there a huge marked for modest fashion, we are also fashionable and set trends. Last year an Indonesian designer showed her line at NYFW and all models wore the hijab and now Halima Aden will walk the catwalk for Yeezy Season 5. I think it's great to see that the fashion industry is taking notice of us and not only because they want to gain exposure themselves, but beauty they see beauty in us - hijab or no hijab. Finally...

Sorry for the rambling...but once I get started on this subject it's hard to stop...During Copenhagen Fashion Week earlier this month I was stopped on the street by @thestyleograph and she took a couple of photos of my outfit. I was wearing my Sotra kaftan that I also wore for Eid in July. Threw a leather jacket on top and wore jeans and loafers. Very last minute change from my outfit at Ciff Kids, but very me and very comfy - just too cold, which explains the serious face - I think my face was frozen haha...Didn't see anyone else wearing a hijab or a headpiece at CPHFW, but hope to see more representing next season...
