Milan Fashion Week, which took place between February 21-27, made international headlines this year. 

Without a doubt, the many luxury designers taking part of the show were one of the reasons, but the participation of three Muslim models - two of whom are hijabis - was the ultimate highlight of the event. 

Somali-American Halima Aden, Danish Amina Adan, and Dutch-Moroccan-Egyptian Imaan Hammam all took part in this season's fashion week in Milan, Italy. 

Both Aden and Adan donned Max Mara's Fall 2018 collection, showcasing bold, dark, and edgy outfits. Hammam appeared on Versace's runway the following day in a little black dress.

Amina Adan pushed her way into the high-fashion world despite her hijab

Amina Adan sported a grey pantsuit combo with a black leopard-print hijab. The Danish hijabi model, who is signed by Unique Models, stunned the audience and media with her first international fashion show participation. Previously in the season, she walked at the Copenhagen Fashion Week.

Stealing the spotlight was Somali-American Aden, who had walked for Max Mara in 2017 for the first time and had recently risen to fame for being featured in several international campaigns.

Aden, who was born in a refugee camp in Kenya, first made headlines when she became the first hijabi Miss USA contestant back in 2016. 

She signed with IMG Models - home to Gigi and Bella Hadid and Miranda Kerr - has walked Kanye West's NYFW Yeezy Collection in 2017, and was featured in Rihanna's Fenty Beauty makeup line

On the other hand, Imaan Hammam walked the runway for Versace on February 23, wearing a mini black dress paired with a statement belt. 

Commemorating her success, Hammam posted a video of her walk with the caption, "Walk it like i talk it." 

The fashion industry is taking note of hijabis

It's been a long time coming for Muslim women who wear the headscarf; from being featured in an international H&M campaign to having their very own Nike line, hijabis are making a statement everywhere, and fashion brands are starting to pay attention.
