The world of fashion is still shockingly lacking in diversity.
Even brands specifically designed for people who don’t fit the fashion stereotype – tall, white, slim – often fail to measure up in terms of inclusivity, frequently only using models that fit a restricted view of beauty – whether it’s hourglass figures in plus-size campaigns, or only using models with lighter skin tones.

Habiba Da Silva is a 22-year-old blogger and designer from Birmingham. She’s just launched a hijab fashion range, called Skin, designed to be inclusive of all races and skin tones.
This Muslim blogger wants to set a new standard for fashion inclusivity.
