Zainab Husain interviews Hafsa Lodi, author of Modest: A Fashion Paradox

Journalism student Zainab Husain interviews journalist, stylist and author Hafsa Lodi.

My guest is Hafsa Lodi, journalist, stylist and author of Modest: A Fashion Paradox. The modest fashion industry is gaining momentum and is finally getting recognised by mainstream fashion houses. But there are still misconceptions and ignorance around modesty. Observing the latest developments in Europe, such as banning the niqab, burkini and now the hijab in France for women under 18, it’s more important than ever to have a dialogue. Lodi has an extensive career in fashion journalism and has spent years researching modesty for her book and has insight and knowledge. In this podcast interview, we discuss the modest fashion industry and Lodi’s journey with modesty.
