Zainab Phillips, as the first veiled Muslim woman to present a Men's fashion line, made a powerful debut onto the stage of New York Fashion Week on September 8th, 2017 with "Fit for a King" an impactful visual statement of custom suit fashion that spoke volumes of equality and tolerance.
Celebrity Publicist, Tom Estey, reacted to her show saying "Fashion Meets Human Interest." Challenging the standards, Zainab Phillips has blurred the lines of social, religious, and cultural lifestyles. Her decision to focus on men's fashion for the Fall/Winter 2017 season, gives pause to reflect not just on what it means for men to express themselves, specifically to the idea that it is acceptable for men to embrace more feminine aspects of style, but also on challenging the standards of what it means to be a woman and having a creative voice that crosses lines.
Fit for a King Zainab Phillips Sherwanis
Beyond the needle and thread, beyond the model fittings, beyond the impressionable fashion down the runway, a courageous step outside the box; Zainab's fashion has been applauded for the message of acceptance she delivers. Fashion for all "human" interest.
Enjoy the vision of Zainab Phillips, the "Queen of the Needle", Founder of HotMomma Designz.
