This July, Imaan is cover girl for Vogue Magazine, the third time she is landing such role.
At 21, the African model has a lot of reputation not known of most models with “skin color.” When she was discovered in Amsterdam’s Central station by an agent from CODE Management in 2010, the Amsterdam-born- Egyptian- descent model was sent to Paris with VIVA Model Management.
Signed on to DNA Model Management in New York, Hammam has walked the runways for Burberry, Alexander McQueen, Maison Margiela, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Michael Kors, Moschino, Chanel, DKNY, Jean Paul Gaultier, Hugo Boss, Stella McCartney, Oscar de la Renta, Dolce & Gabbana, Alberta Ferretti, Derek Lam, Ralph Lauren, Carolina Herrera, Thierry Mugler, rag+bone, Roberto Cavalli, Valentino, Balenciaga, Hermés, Tommy Hilfiger, Diane Von Furstenberg, Anna Sui, Vera Wang, Versace, Fendi, Proenza Schouler, Tom Ford, and Dior.
She has also been given the special honor to open the Givenchy show as exclusive.
Despite her career, Hammam takes her religion very seriously, saying in a statement:
“I’m half Moroccan, half Egyptian, and I was born in Amsterdam. I’m Muslim, and I’m super proud of my heritage and of my roots. I want to be a role model for young girls who are struggling with racism or struggling with their looks or with their skin color……But there aren’t many Arabic models, and being an African-Arabic model, I’m trying to open doors for more Arabic girls.”
