Teen Idol - Dina Torkia (AKA Dina Tokio)
Let’s be real for a moment - there are a lot of messed up things happening in the world right now. That’s why when there’s a young person spreading some good, we can’t help but shout (and write) about it!
Dina Torkia (also known as Dina Tokio) is another fashion blogger to hit the social media scene, and with 1.1 million followers on Instagram and half a million subscribers on YouTube, think it’s safe to say that she’s in it for the long haul. So what separates Tokio from the thousands of bloggers out there? The fashionista is combining her passion for fashion and Muslim faith to showcase that women can still be stylish when wearing a hijab. There are many negative stereotypes today, particularly within the Muslim community and rise of Islamophobia, so it’s great that Tokio is breaking down these barriers and revealing to the world that one person doesn’t represent an entire religion and community.
Tokio never fails to wow her followers on Instagram in her latest outfits, paired with an equally rocking hijab of course! Since Tokio started her blog, she’s been able to influence and help young Muslim girls, who find it difficult to find that balance between fashion and religion, to get some inspiration with their style. With her impeccable eye for trends, her collaborations with Liberty and H&M, and being involved in London Modest Fashion Week, she’s been able to reach a large audience and change the way people view the fashion industry.
