After fleeing Somalia’s civil war and spending nine years in a Kenyan refugee camp, before eventually landing in Iowa, #UgbadAbdi’s biography offers a remarkable story of endurance. Her breakout success has been a phenomenon to observe, and by wearing a wealth of different head coverings for shows – from beanies at @Burberry
