Me.

Why me?

Because I relate to her. 

 

Who is she?

Simply, the essence of my culture with all of its sophisticated struggles.

As a young designer, I have been always fascinated with this woman, her life, her story and her struggles. A woman that represents a story of a country.

Throughout the years, the fashion capitals helped in shaping the fashion industry around the world, but not my part of the world, not my country, not my culture. We were forced to be on hold.

Let's imagine for a moment, the Palestinian woman, today, in a perfect world, where nothing bad had ever happened, where will she be today? to be more specific, the art of embroidery, how would it evolve..

Today, I have made a commitment to my beautiful culture to be part of a community that works toward making us part of today's fashion. I don't want to be known for the fact that I am just another fashion designer in the market, I want to be known as the individual who was part of adding beautiful designs and pieces into the important moments of people that approaches modern heritage.
