LONDON // Meeting Sarah Elenany is a striking experience. Not just because she is petite, friendly and brimming with life – although she is. Not because she dresses according to the Islamic rules – in Britain these days that it is unexceptional. What makes her stand out is the way she takes the dress code and turns it into something young, edgy and cool.
