I am very excited to be taking on the new role of Assistant Editor at Hijab Style. So as expected here is some ‘about me’ stuff…
My name is Kawther and I am a British Muslim originating from
Iraq but raised in
Leeds ( Northern England). I have always loved
art and design from a young age and in my late teens I started showing an
interest in designing clothes. This gradually turned to more than an interest
and hobby, as I recently graduated with a fashion design degree. I came across
the Hijab Style blog whilst researching for my final year dissertation which
was based on Islamic fashion. This changed all ideas I had of Islamic clothing
which I always imagined it to be very dull and out dated! I recently set up a
design and dressmaking service and I aspire to develop that into a successful
fashion brand one day!
I hope to introduce a variety of exciting new topics reflecting my creative flair and knowledge of the fashion industry. Of course I will also be on the lookout for modest fashion and exciting new brands to add to the existing archive of Hijab Style!
