Hussain, the designer of the fashion label Ushahidi, recently tweeted about how she wears her clothes with the slogan “sociationally conscious.”
“Saying it is culturally aware is a very strong statement for us,” Hussa said.
“Saying that the fashion industry has a problem with what it sees as the exclusion of Muslims from the fashion world and a lack of diversity in its ranks is a statement of strength for us.”
She said she wears jeans with the words “sustainability” printed on them to show the way she has become more eco-conscious.
“When I started making clothes, I wanted to be different,” Hensa said, “I wanted to make a statement.
Now I can’t hide the fact that I wear jeans with sustainability symbols, like a black tag on them.
It is a bold statement that reflects the way I see myself.”
Hussa, who is an American citizen, said she is “confident” the US would be able to be a “sustainable, diverse, and tolerant society” in the near future.
“I’m not sure the United States will be the same country in the long run, but I am confident in our future,” Hausa said in a statement posted on Twitter.
“My hope is that by wearing jeans and having a sustainable, diverse and tolerant culture, we can change the country for the better.”
