It is a strange and wild world, friends, in which the likes of me gets invited to speak at an institution like Princeton. It’s an Ivy League! It produced my most beloved and brilliant art professor/theologian! I will be speaking alongside Ph.Ds and designers with Vogue mentions and other humans with Very Impressive Resumes!
Yet somehow, this is the world we live in. I’ve been invited to speak about modest fashion as community and commerce alongside a brilliant array of women representing a range of faiths. If the exclamation points above didn’t make it clear, I’m pretty stoked about it.
Here are the nitty gritty details:
Who: Yours truly, along with London College of Fashion professor and author Reina Lewis, Mimu Maxi designers Mimi Hecht and Mushky Notik, The Tempest founder Laila Alawa, and lawyer and altMuslimah founder Asma T. Uddin
What: a half-day symposium on “Modest Fashion as Community and Commerce”
When: Sunday, November 13 from 1-6 p.m. EST
Where: Frist Campus Center, Multipurpose Rooms B & C, Princeton University, NJ
If you’re anywhere in the area (New Yorkers, I’m looking at you), you should join the fun and cheer for me as I try to keep up with my betters. Learn more about the symposium here, and register to attend here. Hope to see you there!
