Somali Culture - FASHION SHOW

| On
Sunday, April 10, 2016
I recently was given the opportunity to showcase my designs at a fashion show. It took about three weeks to sew, cut, design all of these dresses (6 to be exact)! It was a wonderful experience and it really showed me how invested I am in fashion design. And I am very proud of my designs and of course my lovely models.

For this collection I wanted to fuse Somali and American culture. Being born and raised in the U.S, it's difficult for me to pick which culture I most identify with, because in reality I am apart of both. This was inspired by my hopes in embracing both of my cultural identities.

If you would like one of these custom made dresses, please contact me:

  1. These are really popular places in the city for private events for corporations like us. It can be hard to find the right Chicago event space for big events. The right size, that is flexible fits well. Thanks to you.
