Yes it is true.. I met Dian Pelangi and Co. not only at a fashion parade but I had lunch with her two days later. She is the most lovely and gorgeous person mashallah that I was really taken aback. I honestly thought someone of such high profile would not be so down to earth and wonderful to be around!
To me she is the best representative of Islam - a successful businesswoman who is modest and sweet. Any non-Muslim who meets her would definitely leave with the best impression of Islam. So a bunch of Melbourne bloggers and friends took her out to eat at a halal middle eastern style restaurant called Byblos where we ate and sipped on delicious fruit mock-tails and chit chatted about everything. Dian was so lovely that she even brought us all gifts! Too sweet mashallah!
I think we need more young Muslimah like Dian to represent and change the views the world holds about Muslim women. Here are a couple of pictures of the night.
