This 23-year-old model who was discovered on Instagram just made history for H&M
The London native was discovered on Instagram, the fashion site adds.
She appears as a part of H&M's new campaign, "Close The Loop," which zeroes in on recycling fibers for sustainable clothing - and features many often marginalized demographics, including Sikh men and plus size models.
"Some people think it's great that women can be beautiful and wear a hijab, and others think they're forced to wear it. I'm quite thick-skinned though, so if people did say anything to me, I wouldn't notice it anyway," she said to Fusion.
Idrissi told Fusion she attended Islamic school for 10 years and started wearing a hijab when she was 17.
