Zarinah El-Amin Naeem is the chief founder of the Headwrap Expo, first debuting her show last year in Dearborn with hundreds of people from diverse backgrounds and cultures coming together for several causes: interfaith relations, the art of headwrapping, and fashion. She plans to take her expo on the road to the Big Apple, New York in November.

I had the pleasure of working with all the models in the fashion segments, teaching them how to walk with poise and pose for the cameras like never before. I must say, I am so very proud of all of you who ‘werked’ and ‘ripped’ the runway.

expo3Look at all of these colors and textures!

expo12Marketta and her sister, Jathiyah, really made the fashion segments run smoothly. They didn’t get any sleep trying to figure out the what-was-whats. Congrats to our fashion coordinators!

I remember being a girl very much so into fashion and going to stores where they had a small, tiny sections for plus-size women all the way in the back of the store or near the furniture, in the basement. No effort was put into the style of the mannequins. No bright colors or bold prints. The spaces were drab and dull. But the straight-size section was up front. Colors and racks upon racks of choices. A true stylista’s playground. For a little girl who was a size 16 at 13 years old, how do you think that made me feel? How many of us has had to take the walk of shame to the plus-size section and settle? So, I bought a pair of jeans that were three sizes too small. My “fitspo” jeans. If I could starve myself enough to get into those jeans, shop in the straight-size section, then and only then would my worth align. Worth hadn’t belong to fatties like me. Or that’s what society had brainwashed me to believe. Although we have a long way to go, I’m so glad there are a retailers out there that I can actually fit my wide size 24 thighs into these @warpweftworld jeans and top comfortably. Have you ever bought too small clothes for motivation to lose weight? What size were you when you were little? Any body can chime in. Let’s chat.
