Verona Collection have teamed up with the Muslim news to produce a series of videos called More Than Modest.
Verona Collection and The Muslim News wanted to reach out to Muslim women and hear what they had to say on topics affecting their daily lives and the resulting video clips should be both entertaining and enlightening.
The members of the panel come from a number of backgrounds, including:
Yasmine Alom, Senior make up artist for Mac and entrepreneur, Dr Huda Thakur a medical doctor and corporate business coach, Aisha Rahman aka @ModestStreet a life style blogger, Fatima Lilly aka @Arabolish a modest fashion blogger and Zahra Rose an Entrepreneur and modest fashion model. Mariam Taqi is a celebrity makeup artist, Maryam Marurimz a social worker and Narjice Basaran a charity founder and Digital Marketing consultant and many more ladies to come in upcoming videos.
The final videos will be available to view on both Verona Collection and The Muslim News social media channels.
