Hello everyone and Jummah Mubarak! As you know, its Friday, which means it's time for Featured Friday!! I think as sisters in Islam we need to support each other as much as possible which is why I do the Featured Friday posts to just share sisters' stories from around the world. I know I have been slacking on them but I have not forgotten about it!
So to kick things back off, today I am featuring the beautiful Asma! When I want to feature someone, I ask them to send me some of their favorite outfit pictures along with a little bio about themselves along with a blurb about how they describe their style. I used to sum it up and add my comments in on the person and their style, but I think for the sake of truly getting to know the sister, from this point forward, I'm going to let you read what they sent me. I will say however, that I don't remember how I came across Asma's instagram profile, but I have been following her for quite some time and I love her style, it is so effortless, in my opinion, yet so beautiful. See what Asma has to say below!
'Asma Bint Zorah' is the name I use in social media. It simply means: Asma, the daughter of Zorah. And I chose this name because my mother is the one who inspires me the most to be creative.
Antwerp (Belgium) is my home town. Even though I was born and raised in Belgium, I'm very proud of my Moroccan roots (both parents immigrated from Morocco).
What else? Hmmm... I'm 27y, I have a master in industrial engineering (biochemical) and currently working full time in a company in the port of Antwerp. Also, I'm married to my best friend, Soufiane. No kids yet. One fine day inshallah ;)
My fashion style? Well, I don't think I have a specific fashion style. I basically let my mood, the weather and the occasion inspire me to pick out my outfits. One day you'll see me wear old school and the next day a more elegant outfit. I guess I'm not a 'girly girly' kinda type, maybe more of an urban kinda one. To keep it short, I just wear whatever I find inspiring and not because others like it but rather because I like it.
You can see more of Asma's style on her BLOG!
