Writing for ELLE.com last year,  the CEO of Haute Hijab,  Melanie Elturk, points out that modest fashion is on the rise, noting DKNY’s Ramadan collection, a model wearing a hijab in an H&M campaign, and, overall, designers showing modest options on the runway (long sleeves, long skirts). “Brands are finally taking note of what I’ve been advocating since I founded the fashion brand Haute Hijab in 2010, ” Elturk wrote, “that Muslims (in this case Muslim women) are a thriving, fully-functioning and active segment of society who deserve to be acknowledged and heard.”
