We’ve got Barbie dolls in new shapes and sizes, and seven different skin tones, but it falls to others to expand her fashion line. A hot new Instagram account called Hijarbie is showcasing Barbie in Muslim fashions! Nigerian artist Haneefah Adam designs and sews outfits for Hajibarbie and posts the pictures. She told Buzzfeed

“Initially, I started it to provide an outlet for my own creativity. My hope with this account is to create a positive awareness and impact.”

“I want Hijarbie to inspire the Muslim girl child. It’s about having a doll that looks like her, that represents her own cultural and religious background.”

The fashions are based on real-world clothing, and some of the images include the human model. You can follow Hijarbie at Instagram.
