"I was exhausted of the images I was seeing", said Aden in a November interview with the St. Cloud Times.

She has been recently been signed to IMG Models, and it is a totally great thing.

Born in a Kenyan refugee camp and later relocating to Minnesota, the fashionista made headlines previous year when she competed in Minnesota's Miss USA competition proudly rocking a hijab and a burkini for the swimsuit portion of the show.

With his wife Kim Kardashian West in the front row next to Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour, West debuted the fifth season of his high-end athleisure wear collection for Adidas to the fashion world's elite.


Though the agency has signed Muslim models before, Ivan Bart, president of IMG, calls Aden's commitment to the hijab unique and refreshing.

Speaking previously in the clip Kim said: "Let me see this outfit you have on".

Halima Aden, 19, made her runway debut on day seven of NY fashion week at one of the hottest and most exclusive tickets in town - West's at times experimental collaboration with Adidas. "Working with Carine and her team is always incredible".

"They don't want another element to make more drama", the source explains.


Many of West's designs have featured fur.

Considering the complaints and slams following the delays of his Season 4 show, Kanye West was expected to start his Season Five early - at least, according to the line of attendees gathered outside Pier 59.

Aden has been a proponent of diversity in modeling since she began down the path in the fall. Instead, there was just a bitof a fashion industry fuss among New York Fashion Week organizers, with West booted from the official schedule due to "bad behavior".
