World-famous supermodel Gigi Hadid sent love to Pakistani artist and designer Misha Japanwala and her powerful art on Instagram.
The New York-based artist had turned to her social media to share a story with her fans and followers about how the fashion icon came to her rescue this year amidst the escalating crises all around.
During a question and answer session, Japanwala shared her favourite creation of 2020, posting a click of herself wearing a mask.
“When the pandemic hit, I lost my full-time job in fashion (and along with it the visa that was keeping me in the country/my health insurance/my income) and was at an all-time low. It hadn’t even been a month since getting laid off when Gigi Hadid reached out, asking to collaborate on this piece,” Japanwala continued.
“It hadn’t even been a month since getting laid off when Gigi Hadid reached out, asking to collaborate on this piece,” Misha Japanwala continued.
“It was an unbelievable blessing during a really dark time, and will always have a special place in heart because of that,” she concluded.
Hadid re-shared her story on her profile along with a heart emoticon.
Japanwala and Hadid collaborated for the model’s ‘Gigi Journal Part II’ which features the artist’s work, along with that of others from across the globe.
She had shared an appreciation post earlier in July about the same. “So excited to finally share the finished image for #GigiJournalPartII @vmagazine , which is officially on selected newsstands! I couldn’t be more proud to be part of this very special publication, guest edited and creative directed by Gigi Hadid,” wrote the artist.
“I never thought that at the time of the journal’s publication, cases in the US would be surging in 41 states and that hospitals would be swelling. For those who continue to resist precautionary measures and try to argue that the threat of this virus is false, I have family working in an ER full of Covid-19 patients… and can promise you this is very real. So please, wear a [expletive] mask and wash your hands! It’s the absolute least we can do.”
