As the founder and CEO of the leading US hijab brand, Haute Hijab, Melanie Elturk is highlighted as a significant thought leader in modest fashion. She made waves earlier this year when her brand created a new category in fashion – Luxury Hijabs.
As a former civil rights attorney, Melanie brings her passion for social justice into the fashion industry as she sets out to normalize hijab in the mainstream and build the world's first global hijab brand.
In addition to speaking around the world as a modest fashion expert, she is a regular contributor on ELLE.com and has been featured in the New York Times, NBC Today, USA Today, Glamour, InStyle and others.
