From refugee camp to catwalk; We can describe the story of Halima Aden, first hijab wearing model, with these words. 

Halima was born to Somali parents in a refugee camp in Northeastern Kenya. At the age of sixteen, she entered the Miss Minesota USA wearing her hijab and burkini for the swimwear part of the contest, were published in newspapers and blogs all over the world. Though Aden did not take place in the pageant, she did catch the eye of an agent. Her career has included runway appearances for the brands Max Mara, Yeezy 5 and a campaign for Nike. 

While there have been other Muslim models like Somali Iman and Kenza Fourati, she is the first Muslim model who choose to wear Hijab.


Mülteci kampından podyumlara; İlk tesettürlü model olan Halima Aden’in hikayesini bu şekilde ifade edebiliriz aslında.

Halima Kuzeydoğu Kenya’da Somalili bir ailede doğdu. 16 yaşındayken katıldığı Miss Minesota güzellik yarışmasındaki tesettürlü ve mayo etabındaki burkini giymiş hali tüm dünyada gazetelerde ve bloglarda yayınlandı. Aden yarışmayı kazanamasa da bir modellik ajansının dikkatini çekmeyi başardı. Kariyerine Max Mara ve Yeezy 5 için podyumlarda yürüyüşünü ve Nike için katıldığı reklam filmlerini dahil etmeyi başardı.

Somali Iman ve Kenza Fourati gib başka Müslüman modeller olmasına rağmen, Halima Aden tesettürlü olmayı seçen tek modeldir.
