Lindsay is set to launch her own beauty line in the very near future, later this year, so could this indicate her range will also be Muslim-friendly? We’ll keep our ears to the ground.
The new powerhouse is expected to take modest fashion to new heights, with a focus through the group on greater collaborations with leading domestic brands, further mainstream associations and in-house product development at the core.
