For most of us, NYFW is lived vicariously through the Instagram feeds of designers, models, magazine editors, celebrities and lucky show-goers. To streamline the process for you, we rounded up our favorite must-follow accounts for this season’s #MuslimGirlFashionPack.
1. Halima Aden @kinglimaa
I should stop the list right here, because @kinglimaa is basically all you’ll ever need. Watch the Muslim fashion world’s darling (and pretty much everyone else’s too) meteoric rise to becoming a fashion icon through insider posts and videos, while following along on her New York Fashion Week adventures.
2. Maria Alia @mariaalia
Another one of our favourite social media darlings. Maria always brings her A-game to her street style.
3. Leena Asad @withloveleena
Her love of crisp neutrals and flowing prints are giving us major fashion envy.
4. @simplyjaserah, @sincerelymaryam and @hajra_aaa
Captured while… trying to find the most photogenic place to eat?
5. Saufeeya Goodson @feeeeya
Easily one of the best Instragram accounts to follow all year long. @feeeeya is supplying us with fire NYFW pics, and behind the scene shots of some of the most coveted shows.
6. Miski Muse @musegold
This is a name you need to know. She walked and closed her first fashion show this year for Drome. Also, she’s a makeup artist and was featured in Vogue. So yeah, she’s one to watch.
7. Heba Jay @heba_jay
All-white is a skill not many can master. How does she do it? Questions that need answers, Heba XO.
8. Fatima of La Femme Petite @lafmpetite
9. Summer Albarcha @summeralbarcha
“N-now the party don’t start till I walk in,” Albarcha, probably, when she landed a little late in NYC yesterday.
10. Meme @mademoisellememe
Meme’s street style has so far been featured on both Vogue and Harper Bazaar’s street style roundups.
11. Noor @noore
12. Tamu McPherson @tamumcpherson
McPherson is the blogger behind All The Pretty Birds. She’s contributed to Glamour U.S., Harper’s Bazaar U.S., Metro and Refinery 29. Girlfriend is not afraid of color, and she does it well.
13. Shiona Turini @shionat
Shiona worked at Yves Saint Laurent and Tom Ford before switching over to the editorial side of fashion, becoming an editor for W Magazine, CR Fashion Book and finally, Cosmopolitan. I basically want to be her.
14. Rihanna @badgirlriri
Queen Riri needs no introduction. Also Rihanna basically owns Fashion Week now. Best designer entrance of all time? We think so.
15. Annis of @akamera.nyc
Annis is blogger and photographer with one of the most high-def NYFW feeds. High quality pictures from a high quality girl. We like it most when she turns the camera on herself.
16. Mangue Banzima @quistyle
Photographer Mangue Banzima takes amazing street style pics. Plus…we love his NYFW Hijab series. *wink wink*
