Halima Aden reflects on The September Issues #3 cover. Captured by Paola Kudacki, she wears a full look from Gucci including a visor hat, tailored jacket and lace gloves. The Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Issue model wears modest looks in accompanying images. Styled by Mindy Le Brock, Halima takes the spotlight in the Revisionism issue.
“I think Paola conveyed that being different is beautiful. Some of the photos even make you question what the story is and what is going on. Like the hijab, sometimes it can be off-putting for people, but then they get to know me and it’s kind of cool,” says Halima.
The September Issues is a digital and print magazine campaigning for uninhibited creativity within global feminism. Since their inception in 2016, they have had a dual mission: to make fashion a feminist issue and to create a platform for artists who are underrepresented in mainstream media. The September Issues is at the forefront of the evolution of art and media, and gives artists the space to start new conversations that examine representation and responsibility in society and culture. Each issue of the magazine aligns itself with a group, charity, or cause to educate and incite action. For inspiration, creation, and to join the community, visit theseptemberissues.com
