Grace & Coy perfectly envisions the style and modest image that I wish to achieve in this ever-changing fashion industry. Grace & Coy is aimed to inspire women and young girls who dress modestly and to change the public’s perception of a Muslim woman. Grace & Coy aims to change people’s stereotype of a covered Muslim women. Inshallah, I will wear the hijab this year and Allah will make it easy for me.
Grace & Coy is more than just a perfect portrayal to my image; it has a sentimental value to me. As the inspiration came from my baby sister and youngest cousin – Isabella Grace and McCoy!
Behind Grace & Coy is a quiet and introvert Darwin girl, Michaela. That’s me! In 2013, my high school sweetheart and I packed up our lives and moved interstate. New beginnings for us both. Grace & Coy made it’s mark in 2016 and was named Canberra’s most stylish Instagramers next to the likes of A Stylish Moment and Looking Through Her Closet.
With a Diploma of Professional Photo, Film, TV & Personal Stylist at the palm of my hand. I am further enhancing my education within the fashion industry by currently studying a Diploma of Applied Fashion Design and Merchandising at Melbourne Fashion Institute.
Coco Chanel once said “Fashion is not something that exists in dress’ only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening”.
I couldn’t agree more, as I consider fashion as part of my lifestyle because if you look closely, fashion is a work of art and art makes up our surroundings. Grace & Coy is an androgynous personal blog with a modest lifestyle full of an obsession for artistic caffeine drinks, online shopping tips and tricks, blogging, travel and anything else my heart desires. As a revert I aim to live a grace and coy lifestyle in a way that it will please Allah.
