Emerging Fashion Industry Empowers Muslim Women, Shapes Identity


Up-and-coming designers Bayan and Amany Jondy are creating a new niche in the fashion world inspired by Islam's guidelines for modesty with their clothing line, Zeena. Since its launch in 2011, Zeena has become one of the hottest new lines for Muslim women in the U.S., and has opened up a world of opportunity for them in the process. The two sisters, from the D.C. area, launched their line because they believe that Muslim women in the West can be loyal to both their religious and American identities. Shown here is a Zeena model wearing pieces from their collection. www.simplyzeena.com. (PRNewsFoto/Zeena)
