Our Favorite Moments from #NYFW 2019
Posted on 20 February 2019
Who isn't still reeling with excitement after watching personal stylist Hakeemah Cummings @HakeemahCMB on WUSA9 Great Day Washington? Presenting three modest fashion looks inspired by New York Fashion Week, we are so proud of Hakeemah for her beautiful representation of Muslim creatives making a positive difference in the fashion industry and lighting up our homes with her eloquent words. As we continue to explore #UncoverModesty and the rise of modest fashion in the mainstream, today on Zeena Uncovered we're re-living the best runway moments from New York Fashion Week 2019 along with a few street-style looks that will leave you ready to take a bite out of the Big Apple.
In her first ever runway appearance, journalist, storyteller and activist, Noor Tagouri @Noor was a lovely surprise closing the all-inclusive Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2019 show wearing the multidimensional Clover Jumpsuit and matching hijab. Yes, we said it...matching! Keep an eye out for more 'prints on prints' looks this season and you'll stay right on-trend.

Wow. First time on a catwalk — and had the honor of closing out @RebeccaMinkoff’s show at @NYFW. She is the epitome of what it means to lift women up, to be inclusive, to serve with love. This was SO much fun because that is exactly what this collection is meant to be. Backstage all of the women were cheering each other on (and calming my nerves s/o @lcchan @iskra) and it was the most powerful, wonderful, love filled experience. Thank you, Rebecca. Oh! And the collection is available to shop online now - jumpsuit and matching scarf/hijab too ;) 📸: @moeez
We loved watching Halima Aden @Halima walking for Sherri Hill and UNICEF USA in that jaw-dropping beaded gown! Proving fashion is more than what's on the surface, Halima is using her supermodel powers for good, helping children in need across the globe.

Tastemaker and fashion blogger Marwa Meme Biltagi @MademoiselleMeme is exceptional in her pleated midi by Self-Portrait worn beneath a midnight blue Claudia Dress coat from @GiulivaHeritageCollection. We still can't get over her raspberry-red shoe + tights + bag combo from Meme's own collection. "Opaque tights are the trend for the season," she says, "be it pastels or a cherry red, they instantly add a different dimension to any look." (Read her full interview with the Modist here.)
Globetrotting diva Maria Alia @MariaAlia reminds us why the trench coat (or trench dress) will never go out of style. Frosted with a saffron red hijab from @velascarves, it's easy to recreate this look with a pair of white cowboy boots and your coolest shades.
Native New Yorker and Instagram fashionista Hajra Tariq @Hajra_aaa is definitely one to watch. No bunnies were harmed in the making of this sweeping statement coat from @Heurueh (hoo-roo). It's 100% synthetic and cruelty-free, an ethical choice for dressing up a slim black trouser and matching hijab.
