Islam & Ethical Fashion

Zainab Koli is an Indian American Muslim woman whose work sits at the intersection of sustainable fashion, community organizing, and Islam. She is the Co-Founder of two Muslim community organizations, Faithfully Sustainable and NY MSA Showdown. She plans to continue bringing together her background in fashion design and product development and community organizing to build just fashion systems free from social and environmental exploitation by centering the voices and solutions of BIPOC communities. She is currently on a journey of learning about social and environmental justice internally within Islam, her community, family, and culture. Zainab is also looking forward to beginning her Masters in Environmental Policy and Sustainability in the Fall, despite her skepticism of academia.
