Islamic Fashion Goes Haute Coutre


A Muslim woman employed by Disney has agreed to wear a beret over her hijab while at work.

Noor Abdallah, 22, was locked in a face off with Disneyland after her employers objected to her religious head scarf.

She works as a vacation planner at a Disneyland Resort Esplanade ticket booth in Anaheim, California. She refused to take another job away from the public, the Council on American-Islamic relations said yesterday.

So the park and Abdallah reached a compromise. Now she wears a blue scarf...

Catch that "face off" flip?

ya your right. it is horrible that they would make her take off her scarf. thanks for understanding, seeing that Orthodox Jewish women wear similar scarves :)
