“Muslim women are vocal, they are strong, they are empowered,” says Melanie Elturk the founder and CEO of Haute Hijab..

Melanie started Haute Hijab as she wanted to create fashion options for Muslim women that made them feel more beautiful and more confident. Far beyond just a clothing option, Haute Hijab is a platform and a community that celebrates and gives voice to Muslim women. “The misconceptions are that we are oppressed, that we are not vocal, that we are weak. But the exact opposite is true,” says Melanie. She herself is an embodiment of a vocal, strong and empowered woman.
