About me

I'm a Palestinian/Jordanian Fashion Design graduate from the University of Brighton. I was born in the United States, lived the entirety of my school years in Amman, Jordan, which then led me to pursue my degree in Fashion Design with Business Studies in Brighton. As a child I was surrounded by creatives in my family who inspired me to follow my dreams of being a designer. I developed my talents into useful technical skills which have helped me excel throughout my studies and discover my own design identity. Some of the characteristics which define my style include the focus on intricate details and minimal design aesthetics. Throughout my journey, I was given the opportunity to intern at a local Jordanian atelier that designed women's evening wear. I gained a vast amount of knowledge about the construction of gowns, the art of appliqué embroidery and the overall experience of working in industry.
