qaher harhash is the first palestinian male model
Although the fashion industry is increasingly acknowledging the power of diversity, it can still be limiting. We are finally seeing more models of color on catwalks and in magazines, there is still little space for models of Arabic, who also now face border restrictions that hamper an international career, especially in America.
However, there are some hopeful exceptions. With his Israeli passport, 19-year-old Palestinian Qaher Harhash, unlike many others of his origin, is able to pass through the country's barriers. With his rare position, Qaher has made it his mission to use the catwalk as a way to increase the visibility of Palestinians globally.
