Broke, a scarce wardrobe, no digital camera, poor English writing skills, living in an exiled city like Tangier (far from the fashion industry) and yet fighting for a spot in the blogosphere. We must be foolish to create a blog under these circumstances, but if we waited for the right time we probably would never started this blog.
Our Fashion Book back in 2002
Amenakin- Muslim Blogger and YouTube GuruAnother relevant motive was to show the moderated and stylish side of Muslim women to the entire fashion community. We read a lot about how the Occident misunderstands the religion of Islam, it hurts to see that people judge our intentions and tag us with submission to men. With this blog we aspire to prove that a Muslim woman is an ordinary woman with ordinary insecurities and dreams. Therefore, Under a veil is a platform created to demonstrate that modesty raises women to a pedestal, where they would be recognized and appreciated by their personality instead of their body. Our readers must have already noticed that our articles are solely offering this overlooked angle of fashion.
And to wrap up, we are just 2 girls aspiring to leave a humble touch in the fashion world through our blog, trying to bridge between that ever-changing system and our unique universe.
