It will feature head wraps from a wide array of cultural and spiritual perspectives.

Zarinah El-Amin Naeem is the founder of the Headwrap Expo & Fashion Show. She describes headwraps as “magical.”

Naeem sat down with us to talk about the show and about the politics of dress -- including the recent, short burkini ban in France.

The fourth annual Headwrap Expo & Fashion Show will take place this Sunday at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center on Michigan Avenue in Dearborn. Details can be found on their website.
