Is this what it feels like to be name-dropped?

I appear in an article in The Star about burqas and “Islamic” influence on French design houses:

Polls have shown that while the Western world debates the burqa, our image in the Middle East is less than favourable. As feminist media critic Fatemeh Fakhraie has pointed out, while governments work to change the Muslim world’s perception on the West, we do little to improve our own perception of the Muslim world.

This tickles me a little, as I was never asked for an interview. I think they’re referencing the article by Nicole Neroulias that appeared in The Huffington Post last month.

The Star article is an interesting one, especially if you’re interested in fashion. Give it a read!
