2018 Z Best Dressed List Maker: Hawa Ali

Trench Closet: @Hawa Ali
“I am Somali-American with a background in banking. My blog is my creative outlet. Fashion has always been a way for me to express the evolution of my personality and style.”~ Hawa Ali

A little about the moment that Hawa’s first realized her passion for fashion:

I have loved fashion since I was a child; I was always putting things together so that it was just right. I even dressed my siblings and spend hours taking pictures and drawing different looks.

Favorite Brand?


The place of fashion in Hawa’s life:

Fashion is an expression of my mood and feeling. It’s how I communicate the “me” of that moment to the world.

Red over the knee boots. It expresses the fire in my personality and the confidence all girls should have.

We asked Hawa, “ if you could trade your entire closet with any woman in the world, who would it be?”


“And would you actually do it?”


And, speaking of grabbing someone’s style from their closet, many of the Trench members (aka Trenchies) state that one of the things they like most about being part of the Never Ending Closet community is being fashionable while being very environmentally conscious and sustainable.

Hawa told us about the meaning of fashion sustainability to her.

Sustainability is no longer a choice. It’s not a luxury; in fashion and in so many aspects of our lives it’s a necessity. It means not only considering the orgins of the materials utilized in the garments we wear but also the thoughtful disposal of the things we no longer require.

And to wrap up, a fun fact about Hawa:

I love to research; places to visit, things to do, something I am interested in buying. I love researching till I find the perfect thing.
