Nadiya Khan | New Orleans Girl Next Door Turned NYC Model

Posted on September 14 2016

At Muehleder we believe in the empowerment of women who are striving towards great accomplishments. I was introduced to Nadiya Khan at a girlfriend's birthday outing where we immediately complimented each others outfits, scoped out all the cute guys and got busy on the dance floor. We stayed in touch and when she was back in town I asked her to brunch and was really impressed by her work outside of modeling. Her stealth and grace is something I've admired ever since and once you've read the Q&A you will know why. Strength, optimism and genuity make up a #MueQueen and Nadiya does not lack in any of the above, plus she's stunning!

What do you see in your future will be your greatest accomplishment? 
The children's foundation, I Am Hope, my mother helped me created in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, that focuses on feeding and clothing children in impoverished areas, as well as educating the local population on the HIV/Aids virus.

When do you feel you are your most sexiest self? 
A few minutes after I wake up from a long and good nights rest. 
How did wearing the Muehleder pieces make you feel?
Wearing Muehleder pieces accentuates inner beauty and grace. I felt confident and comfortable in my own skin.
