Shortly after fronting a Burberry campaign in December, Somali-British model Ikram Abdi Omar has been selected to star in the advertorial for the new The Outnet x Diane Von Furstenberg (DVF) collaboration.
It’s the first time that the e-tailer has cast a hijab-wearing model in one of its campaigns.
Abdi Omar, who made history as the first veiled model to be cast in a Burberry campaign, stuns in The Outnet x DVF campaign images wearing the renowned American label’s iconic wrap dresses and signature prints, which she accessorizes with a neatly-tied head scarf.
The model made her catwalk debut during London Modest Fashion Week two-years-ago, where she got to walk alongside fellow Somali model Halima Aden, who became the first hijab-wearing high-fashion model on runways in New York and Milan.
Shortly after, Abdi Omar would go on to make her London Fashion Week debut when she stepped out on the Molly Goddard Fall 2018 runway.
She would go on to walk for the likes of Iceberg and Charles Jeffrey, as well as front campaigns for major international brands, including Nike, and feature in a number of publications such as Wonderland magazine, Vogue Arabia and Tatler, to name a few. Source:Arabnews
