Meet The Women Under The Abayas: Shahad Salman

Saudi’s first-ever street-style book succeeded in shattering stereotypes and demystifing the way the world views women from the Kingdom. Bazaar chats with some of the women featured in the second edition of Marriam Mossalli's Under The Abaya.

Striking Saudi model Shahad Salman who has starred in campaigns for Ounass and Farfetch, and made her runway debut for Saudi designer Arwa Al Banawi concedes, “With the support of my family, I was able to become the person I am today, even despite living in a world that is constantly trying to make me someone else.”
