Macy’s to launch Muslim women’s apparel line
Macy’s will begin offering handdyed hijabs, cardigans, dresses and tops online soon. The company has teamed up with Muslim designer, Lisa Vogl, a graduate of The Workshop at Macy’s minority- and women-owned business development program, to showcase her brand Verona Collection.
Last year, Nike also launched a women’s clothing line aimed at Muslim shoppers and has started offering a highperformance hijab made for athletics after Ibtihaj Muhammad, a successful American fencer, became the first American woman to compete in the Olympics while wearing a hijab in the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Verona Collection’s clothing line ranges in price from $12.95 to $84.95 and will launch on Macy’s website on Feb. 15.
