JEDDAH: In a celebration of diversity, renowned brand American Eagle features a hijab-wearing model to mark its summer 2017 collection.

Halima Aden, a Somali American, made headlines last winter for being the first hijab-wearing model on New York and Milan runways.

She was also the first ever Somali American to compete and become a semifinalist in the Miss Minnesota USA pageant.

“She caught our attention at 2016’s Miss Minnesota USA, where she competed in a burkini and hijab,” the American retailer tweeted.

The ad is a part of the brand’s back-to-school collection 2017.
