Thankfully to a select few leaders and innovators, Modest fashion is on the rise. Every day it is getting more grounded, more believable, and ultimately more respected in the Fashion community.
People come from all walks of life, different cultures, different tastes and different experiences and this leads to vast, diverse perspectives. At Mode-ste, we are students of the game, we live and breathe fashion, from the works of High End Minimalist Designer Christophe Lemaire, to the truly contemporary and fashion forward House of St. Laurent Paris, we are able to study the fashion world from a holistic point of view and curate a collection that is designed, cut and sewn exclusively by us, with no middle men.
When it comes to Hijab Fashion, we instantly fell in love with the duo of Saufeeya and Safiyah as, simply put, "They Get It". They understand the likes of Saint Laurent Paris, the classic and foundational Sportswear entity, Nike and all of this really made us wanting to know more and more about Hijab Fashion. Their work has put so many brands, fashion lines and designers on the map, through one simple distilled idea, "Style". You can not buy style, you can not buy taste and this, in our sincere viewpoint, is what sets them apart from all Fashion Curators. With an absolutely insane following, that clings and applauds their viewpoint of the Modest fashion world every day, they are a team that has set the bar for Modest Fashion. They are not trend followers, or trend watchers, they are trend setters taking the Modest Fashion game by storm. To think a young duo like Safiyah and Saufeeya, could make such a massive impact on millions of people is both inspirational and truly unheard of. We aren't surprised to say the least though. They have consistently backed some of the best lines and some of the best street style. When your viewpoint is so universally good, there is no reason not to get to the levels they've gotten.
Something we feel is always missed when speaking of an influential entity, like that of Hijab Fashion, is some of the more subtle points, which in turn are also some of the most important points. Yes they help brands, yes they post epic street style photos, yes they can pick out the sickest pair of Nike runners, but there is so much more to them if you just look and contemplate.
Saufeeya and Safiyah, jazakAllahukhayr for your work, your efforts and your influence in this sphere of Fashion. You have answered our Why? Why? and Why? and have provided us an alternative. For this, we thank you.
Let's start with an intro Safiyah and Saufeeya. Who are you, besides Hijab Fashion? What is your relationship and how did both of you fall into the Fashion scene?:
Besides Hijab Fashion we are professionals in the workplace and students! We've both grown to become close friends, we're very compatible with each other. Although we're across the world from each other, we still find time and manage Hijab Fashion.We've both had different journeys when coming into the Fashion scene. Neither of us expected to grow as much as we have, it all started with one ootd photo, followed by another.
We both have very different styles and taste in fashion!
Safiyah definitely has a cool and casual tone about her style. Her style is very practical and sporty, I personally love it and find it best suited for everyday errands, work and school!Saufeeya has a more feminine and elegant style. Her style is also very Dubai inspired, very glam. She has a love for flowy skirts, but she can also pull off casual and sporty!
Safiyah is very free spirited and enjoys sharing her personal style.
Saufeeya on the other hand would like to eventually be a stylist sometime during her career, promoting modesty.
