Fashion in NYC !

Selams Everyone!

Hope you all are enjoying the beautiful month of March wherever you are in the states and/or around the world. To give a quick update about Team Hijabitopia’s recent activity, I will say “ The interview and shooting with BBC was AH-mazing!” The London-based crew was truly a genuine, friendly, great group of people that made the experience a very fun day for all of us. While I travelled from Washington D.C. and Nicole travelled all the way from Dallas, TX, we came together for a weekend in NYC to roll the Kavakci Couture by Elif Kavakci designs on to the New York scene. It was a breezy and a bit cloudy, yet beautiful day in the city.


Here are some scenes from the BBC filming and Nicole’s photoshoot  
                                







Here's a snapshot of the  BBC crew members

Then…. finishing up the photo-shoot








And finally, Elhamdulillah! a much anticipated end of day celebration with the Hijabitopia team:

(we all look a bit exhausted after a long day yet very happy, don't ya think?)



p.s. if anyone is in nyc for a break or needs leisure time, I highly recommend paying a visit to café Boom off of Wooster and Spring Street in Soho. It’s a very chill, warm, and friendly environment to eat Italian delicacies and listen to some live Spanish guitar performance (very relaxing indeed).

Peace,
Fatima
