Headscarves have been in style for decades: think Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy.
More recently, designer Karen Walker showcased 1940s Rosie the Riveter-inspired headscarves in her spring 2012 show, and Vivienne Westwood and Lie Sang Bong both favored the 1960s triangular headscarves in their 2012 collections.
But headscarves are more than a fashion accessory for millions of women around the world. Muslim women who wear the headscarf known as a hijab do so for religious reasons. Now, the creator of the American Hijab Design Contest is trying to extend the hijab beyond the Muslim population, and help build a following for a fashion trend she calls "covered chic."
