Ugbad Abdi, an 18-year-old model recently made history as the first ever Muslimah to walk the Fendi runway wearing a hijab at the just concluded Milan Fashion Week.
The fast rising model made her fashion debut when she walked for Pierpaolo Piccioli’s Valentino Haute Couture SS19, where she met her fashion idol – Naomi Campbell.
Below is what she had to say about the experience:
“I almost fainted because I didn’t know Naomi (Campbell) was even in the show, let alone right behind me! It was the biggest surprise because I wasn’t even thinking about who would be in the show because I didn’t even think I’d be a part of it.”
