Macy’s has come under fire after announcing an upcoming fashion collection catered to Muslim shoppers, featuring hijabs and more modest clothing options.
The nationwide retailer has partnered with Verona Collection, a modern Islamic clothing boutique, founded by Lisa Vogl, who graduated from Macy’s minority- and woman-owned business development program in 2017.
On Verona Collection’s website, Vogl said her mission to create the fashion brand came after she converted to Islam and “had a stark realization: modest and fashionable clothing were both hard to acquire and difficult to afford.”
#Macy's new clothing to promote "diversity". While women in middle eastern countries are risking their lives to take the #hijab off, Macy's wants women in #America to put it on. #SaveOurCulture#SaveAmericanCulture

The hijab is male domination and subjugation of women – as the brave women of Iran are trying to show the world. You're aiding and abetting this abuse. My family is done with @Macys.
