This is quite interesting since, with a rise in Islamophobia in the West, specifically my beloved America, you see more and more Muslims engaging in popular culture, from Lupe Fiasco to Haute Hijab. Also for the record, I'm not a fan of Lupe, but the activist and "socially aware" Muslims of my generation seem to be raving fans of his. Oh well, we all can't have good taste in music.
Coming back to my point about the rise of Muslims in popular culture, it seems rather counter-intuitive, don't you think? I am not at all criticizing it, it's far better to have fashion shops portraying modest and fashionable clothing as a representation of Islam rather than the likes of The Tsaernev brothers and their demented Lebanese "shaykh". Even Lupe is better than militant preaching by fat old men who will never leave their plush beds but will anger young men to commit such heinous atrocities as what occurred in Boston not too long ago.
Btw, I have a serious question for those of you that read a lot, how does one pronounce the word "Haute". Because, until I am corrected, I am going to continue referring to this site as "Hawty Hijab." Sounds pretty funny anyway. It would be more funny if that were in fact the correct pronunciation.
Anyway, I am really impressed by Haute Hijab and hope other sites and stores like it pop up. Good luck to them.
I highly suggest, if you are a beautiful young woman and interested in fashionable things, check out Hawty Hijab and leave me your number.
