Verona Collection shared the story of its launch and journey on its website, read it below:

"What's now viewed as a successful, international modest clothing brand, wasn't how it was always perceived. Verona Collection was simply an idea, that was conceptualized by a single mom who had converted to Islam in 2011. After embracing Islam, she had a stark realization: modest and fashionable clothing were both hard to acquire and difficult to afford. After doing a bit of research, she realized that many other women, both Muslim and non-Muslim, felt the same way.

Out to solve a problem, this single mom embarked on a journey to bring her vision to life. Dedicated to helping Muslim women and serving the community, she invested $7,000 and launched her company online. Doubling as a photographer and business woman, she captured and launched her products through the lens of her artistic perception. Interested buyers swarmed in from across the globe. Verona Collection's products increased in demand, thus causing the brand to expand. And within a matter of a 2 of years, Verona Collection opened two shipping distributions, a physical store and received honorable recognition from publications such as Huffington Post, NPR, Refinery 29 & Fusion Network.

The brand is more than just a clothing store. They stand for women’s empowerment and taking pride in one's Muslim identity, especially in these critical times. Having a purpose beyond selling clothes doesn't just make them successful, but it also sets Verona Collection apart from their competitors as a distinct and meaningful brand."
