Muslimah Style: The Beautiful Multi-Talented Ibtihaj Muhammad

Ibtihaj Muhammad is of African-American descent, born and raised in Maplewood, New Jersey. She graduated from Duke University with dual bachelor’s degrees in international relations and African and African-American studies.
With an extraordinary passion for fashion, 31 years old Ibtihaj and her siblings in 2014 launched their own modest clothing brand, Louella, which sells floor-length and long-sleeved dresses, jumpsuits, tops, skirts, and pants, all of which adhere to the Muslim practice of covering one’s arms, legs, and neck.
Ibtihaj is also an American sabre fencer, best known for being the first Muslim American woman to wear a hijab while competing for the United States in the Olympics and the first female Muslim-American athlete to earn a medal at the Olympics. She was named one of TIME Magazine’s ‘100 Most Influential People’ of 2016.
