Remember this lady from the #MIPSTERZ’s Somewhere In America video?
That is none other than Marwa Atik: co-founder of Vela, fashion inspiration for Muslim women, and our Baddie of the Month.
Vela is a modern, modest, chic fashion company started by Muslim women and for Muslim women, as stated on their website:
“Our purpose is simple, yet avant-garde: to capture the rare combination of modesty and high fashion… The Vela lifestyle brand is the essence of our long-standing vision to empower Muslim women who embrace the challenge to merge modern flair and individual style.”
Marwa joined us in May’s episode of The Girls’ Room and talked to us about everything from Vela’s start to future plans, fashion views to sociopolitical views, and make-up tips to management advice.
