Somali American designers take on refugee stereotypes in Minneapolis fashion pop-up

Fashion designers Mohamed Malim, 25, and Mohamed Hersi, 30, share similar backgrounds as former refugees. It’s an experience they are embracing and elevating as they launch a new fashion collaboration aimed at countering backlash against refugees and highlighting the power and beauty the arts can have in bringing communities together. 

The two designers will hold their first pop-up event between their brands Epimonia and Original Royal Refugee Saturday from 6-10 p.m. at Malim’s design studio in Minneapolis. The event is free and open to the public. COVID-19 safety precautions are being followed and guests are asked to wear masks.
