H&M's hijab-wearing model: Fashion industry is changing

One of the world's largest fashion retailers is launching a new advertising campaign featuring - for the first time in its history - a Muslim woman wearing a hijab.

Mariah Idrissi, 23, appears in the H&M advert, which is trying to encourage people to recycle clothes.

She told the BBC that she believed the fashion industry was changing to cater better for women wearing the Muslim headscarf.
