Eciting times for one of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia’s past cover stars.
American-Somali model Halima Aden has teamed up with Allure magazine and fashion startup Anywear to help create face masks with matching hijabs for their #BandingTogether project. The limited-edition sets are available to the public and for every set sold one will be donated to a healthcare worker.
According to Anywear’s Instagram account the headbands, hats, bandanas and face coverings all have buttons affixed to them to hold a mask in order to relieve the ears of pressure during long shifts. They can also be used for regular use and self care.
Halima has also been joined by celebrity hairstylist Chris McMillan and makeup artist Daniel Martin, who each designed their own hijab-face mask set.
