Red Stripes

Asalaam aleikum guys, Hope you're all well. Very unlike me to do a blog post at this time of the night, it's 10:30pm but i sleep early and i am totally unproductive at night. So i did a little vote

Winning Woman- Khadija Farah

     Asalaam aleikum, Meet Khadija, a photographer, writer and conservationist. The intros are abit of a repeat of the first question's answers lol but it has to start like that. I do not know many people on instagram that are unapologetically themselves, and this girl is one of the few who are. Her work is absolutely breath taking, like ever seen a picture that makes you feel something? Yap, that's her work. She says her best trait is that she manages to find humor in everything, no wonder she is so funny. 
As always, be inspired, i am.

Winning woman- Munira Khamis Sahal

 Asalaam aleikum loves, Meet Munira,a 22yr old girl with a Masters in chemical engineering and make up skills like no other. I first came across her page after she gave me a shoutout on Instagram saying the kindest thing, talk about women who support other women right! In fact i was inspired to revive this segment after seeing her graduation day post. I don't know a lot of chemical engineers and i'm happy to know (virtually) a Muslim woman who is one. As always, be inspired, you know i am.

Winning Woman- Amina Malyun Mohamed

Asalaam aleikum guys, intros are the hardest part in this series and i feel like i'll always say that but it is because summing up what i have learnt about these women in a few sentences is hard. Meet Amina-Malyun a soon to be lawyer, i insist on calling her a youth activist (even though she wants to be modest) and generally a girl-boss that i can not wait to meet. As always, be inspired, i am.

Winning woman: Nasra Ali

Asalaam aleikum loves, i was inspired to revive this segment after seeing a picture of our winning woman today graduating with a masters in architecture a few weeks back. I love seeing other women win, it reaffirms my belief that we can all make it and that there's enough room for all of us to do so. Meet Nasra, an architect, feminist and possibly the sweetest girl.

Ramadhan Abaya Series- Look 2

Asalaam aleikum loves, i think this is the last look i'll post for the ramadhan abaya series (not much of a series huh lol). This blush pink abaya gives such soft feminine vibes and it's perfect for the days you're extra in touch with your feminine side. Pictures coming up in a few after today's episode of what i feel like will be "Amina-Talks", help me find a less

Thursday, 25 May 2017


Asalaam aleikum loves, it has been absolutely ages and i have missed my blog, i missed this little community of ours. I just need to write, vent maybe or not, call it whatever, it's a life update of sorts. So i have not been blogging, fashion posts or otherwise because i have been working on turning moderne into a legit business and that has been taking up my time but aside from that i honestly do not want to pay someone to take my pictures,

Asalaam aleikum, i don't know if you've noticed but the women featured on this segment so far are quite diverse, as expected of course but it's such a nice balance of every type of woman you might aspire to be or are,at a certain point in your life. We've had a student, working girls who are not yet married, a stay at home mom (with a masters degree) and now we have a working mom,wife and a masters student, the quadruple role. MashaAllah.

Asalaam aleikum, the intros are always the hardest bit for me, i don't think i'll ever learn how to summarize in a few sentences how amazing these women are. Meet Saher, a final year student at University of York, (England) a 21 year old young lady whose values on life and Islam have truly inspired me and i hope they inspire you as well.

Winning Woman: SamSam Mohamed

       Asalaam aleikum loves, I missed last week's winning women post because i was held up but here's this week's post. Meet Samsam, probably the woman with the most important career here, A mother. I wanted to share her story because despite the career woman ideal that is popularized (don't get me wrong, she has a masters degree, haha) it is also absolutely acceptable and equally praised to be a mother and a wife and a woman who takes care of her home. We should all aspire to be whatever we want to be. She also has a motherhood blog Simply A Mama.I hope you're all inspired by her as always.

 This is the first winning women post of 2017 and in the few posts i have done, i have grown to love this segment more and more each day. It is so fascinating to see other women's point of view of life, their experiences and their aspirations. I hope it inspires you as much or maybe even more than it inspires me. Today's winning woman is Lawyer (LLM) Aisha Taib. So grateful she allowed this interview that has left me nothing short of inspired. Here's what we talked about;
