New Yorker wins hijab design contest in Chicago
by Wendy Donahue
Americans who wear a hijab, covering the hair and neck, are sometimes viewed as foreigners on their home turf. New Yorker Sarah Musa, a technical designer for an American fashion and lifestyle company, entered the American Hijab Design Contest to help change that.
In the competition's Chicago finale last weekend, Musa won the grand prize for her quilted shirtdress in a camel color, worn with a turtleneck, knitted hat, slim pants and boots.
Yes, a knitted hat with a turtleneck can constitute a hijab.
