Mariah Idrissi: From H&M to being a face of modest fashion

British-Moroccan model Mariah Idrissi has been dubbed as one of the main faces of modest fashion today. But modelling was never a profession that she initially pursued.

In this debut episode of Real Talk, Mariah reflects on her start in the fashion industry when she became the first hijab-wearing Muslim model to feature in an H&M campaign in 2015. She also opens up about the challenges she faced as a hijabi model in the industry.
