Fashion

Jehania is known for her modest style of dress and fashionable outfits from thrift stores, consignment shops, online boutiques and sometimes designed and made herself. She has often expressed her love for fashion and calls it her “second passion”. She incorporates African, Asian, Middle Eastern and Indian traditional garments into her wardrobe. She names her mother and the posh modest style of Muslim women as her biggest fashion influence.

“Muslim women are the most fashionable women in the world in my opinion. A lot of us know how to sew because they don't sell a lot of the modest clothes we like to wear in stores. We have no choice but to be creative. When I started covering my hair, it seemed like other people were more concerned about it than I was. It’s really not that serious. It’s just a piece of cloth on a woman’s head. I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything at all. Covering your hair is more versatile than people think it is. There’s like a million different ways to tie a scarf on your head, along with so many different fabrics and materials to work with. If you liked my music before, you’re still going to like it. The only difference is that you won’t see my hair anymore. It’s no big deal. I don’t know why people, including other artists, think their opinion matters to me. It really doesn’t. I follow my own lead. I’m going to do what I want, how I want regardless.” – Jehania on wearing hijab
