I’ve somehow had an obsessive admiration for anything relating to Japan. So I’ve created a collection inspired by certain fabrics, colours and patterns connecting to orientalism.

I have designed and made this collection during a time where I wanted to be acknowledge for my skills and creativity, rather than Muslim identity. I desperately wanted to be separated from my craft that I’ve failed to see the celebratory aspect of it all. At least my creativity flourished whilst I was on a journey of self-discovery.
