Within seconds of the show starting, the chatroom was filled with praise. “Mashallah,” wrote one viewer, an Arabic phrase meaning, “what God has willed happened.”

“This is an arena where I am able to see myself and be comfortable in my Africaness and express myself in a modest way,” said Rahima Shaban, the designer behind the brand Beautiful Jamila.

The Best-Dressed Models, Editors, and Designers at Men’s Fashion Week Share the Stories Behind Their Looks
