Tommy Hilfiger and Gigi Hadid announce location of their next collaborative runway show

Both household names, both craftsmen in their industries – Gigi Hadid and Tommy Hilfiger have already taken their ongoing design collaboration to New York, Los Angeles and London. But where next? The duo will be taking the collection to the heart of Italy, Milan.

Hilfiger announced that his fourth consecutive collection with supermodel Hadid will be showcased at Milan Fashion Week on February 25th. The Spring 2018 see-now, buy-now collection follows the pair’s most recent TommyNow show, which debuted at London Fashion Week in September. Including both menswear, and womenswear, the collection will be available to buy straight from the runway.

In a statement from the brand, Hilfiger said “My vision for TOMMYNOW was to create a global platform that we could take on tour to bring our show experience to new audiences around the world” he continued to say how it was about “the fusion of fashion, entertainment and pop culture with experiences, performances and inspiring interactions”.

But will Milan be the final collaborative show between Hadid and Hilfiger? Only time will tell, but we don’t think the TommyxGigi extravaganza will end just yet.

Nike Pro Launches the first Sports Hijab

Nike initially revealed back in March that they would be taking steps forward in the world of sports in relation to female Muslim Athletes, and arguably it was an extremely overdue step.

Now, Nike has officially launched their first sports Hijab, designed to be worn specifically for sport, which is a complete game changer as this makes them the first major sportswear brand to acknowledge the gap in the market for Muslim women who are wanting to compete in sports, but who are still wanting to respect their values.

The Nike Pro Hijab is much softer and light weight than a traditional hijab, allowing it to be perfect to compete in. It comes in a range of head sizes and faces shapes, which means that it is suitable no matter what your face size or shape is, and you can just focus on embracing being a wonderful female athlete, without having to sacrifice any of your values or feeling uncomfortable.

We think that this is a perfect, and long overdue, development in sport and fashion, and we are glad that Nike have officially launched their sports Hijab so now, females competing can do so while feeling extremely comfortable.
