What is your name, age, place of birth, and ethnicity?
How long have you been designing clothes?
About 4 years but, I didn’t do anything about my designs until July 2010!!!!!
Who are your two favorite designers to date?
Elie Saab, there is not one of his dresses that I dislike, plus he's Arab woop! Lol! Also, Rabia Z, is a designer I've only recently come across, she is very well known amongst us hijabies for her amazing work and she is great role model!
One word.. I want it to be HUGE! SIMPLES LOL and inshallah one day open a boutique or two. My dream would be success all over the world and for ALLLLLLL my fans to convert into hijabies.
What is your inspiration for your current collection?
Literally everything around me inspires me! I usually get so many ideas during the night when I'm trying to get some shut eye!!! My head starts buzzziiiing with ideas, which can be a nuisance, but I'm not complaining haha. I try to look at different cultures and mix them up with the Islamic modesty required as well as a Lil London high street fashion! There's quite a lot of choices out there for hijab evening wear, but not so much casual wear that gives off that ‘london look’, so at the moment I'm enjoying concentrating on casual/street wear.
When can we look forward to purchasing your gorgeous garments?
I knowwww, I keep answering this question with ‘inshallah soooon’ lool but I really can't say a specific date at the moment, inshallah (God wiling) though sometime in the 2011. For the moment I'm going to start selling one-off exclusive pieces which is a lil more exciting as it will guarantee my customer ultimate originality!!! Lol inshallah (God willing) of course.
Describe the woman who wears your clothes?
Hmmmm.. that’s a good one. Well she would have to be FUN and BOLD, but CLASSY, INDEPENDENT, CONFIDENT and FIERCE! Definitely one that’s not scared to give her opinion! An all round chic sister with a cute personality and most of all ORIGINAL ... god, this woman would be a lot of things! A woman that can be herself at the end of the day.
What price points will your pieces range ?
Well I'm aware that my most popular target market would be lets say between 15-30 yrs.. so I don't want things to be ridiculously priced!! I'm going to be looking at high street prices inshallah (God willing) my clothes will be affordable. Taking a wild guess I'd say between £15-£80, depending on what it is of course. The higher prices would be for evening wear and things that might take me YEARRRSSS to make that sort of thing you know.. loool but again can't say for certain right now.
Will you cater to plus size modest fashionistas?
