We told you about how Halima Aden took the world by storm with her burkini and hijab swimwear photoshoot. The Somali-American model is definitely making waves on the fashion scene this year all for the right reasons. She graced the cover of Sports Illustrated as the company announced that she was the latest addition to their swimwear family.
Aden wore two custom burkinis in her photoshoot. One was designed by Cynthia Rowley and the model wore them posing on a beach in Kenya, a country which is very significant in her life.
To celebrate her recent feat we have brought a couple of burkini designs which were inspired by Halima’s pictures.
