Once upon a time, there was a young girl with a keen sense of fashion and an extraordinary eye for making the most mundane outfits come to life. She had a vision that one day people would go from asking her where she got her clothes from to actually wearing her clothes themselves. Her dream was to style people so that they would feel confident and powerful, just like she felt when she wore her designs. This same dream, along with her love for fashion allowed her to purse a degree at LIM, the Laboratory Institute of Merchandising, where she received a bachelor’s degree in Fashion Merchandising. Once she graduated, her dream stayed fresh in her mind, however, days went by and she did not know where to start. She wanted to bring her ideas to life but there was something holding her back, she wasn’t sure how to go about it. However, with the encouragement of her friends and family she took the first step and started a blog that focused on women who cover their hair, she named it Covered In Confidence, or more popularly known as CIC. The initial purpose of this blog was to showcase to the world that just because one wears hijab, it doesn’t mean that they can’t dress to kill, so to speak. Using her own life experiences as a backdrop, this blog allowed her to express the idea that hijab is empowering and should make one feel confident and beautiful. As months went by, CIC blew up all over social media and got an overwhelming amount of positive feedback. It was then that she realized that she wanted to start her own hijab line and fulfill her long lost dream. Using her fashion degree and her own sense of style, she travelled around the world to find the most decadent fabrics and trimmings. She painstakingly designed each and every hijab to her liking and after months of preparation and persistence, she can finally say her vision has come true. Her hijab line is out in the world!
Trim & Proper is a collection that is named after empowering women. Each hijab is unique in its own way, just like the women they are named after. The hijabs in this collection pay attention to detail and color scheme and they allow women to show the world that hijab is a beautiful, in every aspect. CIC wants every woman to flaunt their hijab while still being modest in their dressing and style.
