ASOS launches modest range with Muslim model showing off hijabs and dresse

Founded by fashion photographer Lisa Vogl and fashion designer Alaa Ammuss, who struggled to find modest fashion at an affordable price, the Verona Collection began with a small investment.

A few months after launch, the founders partnered with British entrepreneur and philanthropist Hassan Mawji to grow the collection.

Verona Collection’s Director Hassan Mawji said: ‘Our partnership with ASOS marks a big milestone for Verona and the modest fashion industry – we’ve carefully curated this collection with ASOS and we’re excited about the opportunities this opens up’.

The collection will include a variety of hijabs, modest tops, dresses and trousers that range from £11 to £55.

Asha debuted some of the range on her Instagram where she wrote: ‘Catch me rocking my hijab on ASOS’s new modest collection, just in time for Eid!’

Her posts got thousands of likes and comments, both on her Instagram and Twitter.

After other brands like Nike which introduced its Pro Hijab line and Tommy Hilfiger, DKNY and Dolce & Gabbana who have also embraced modest fashion, we’re excited to see which other labels follow.
