Dear Family, Friends and Supporters
There are no words that can express my sincere gratitude for all the love and support we received following our debut at Torino Fashion Week last year. All the wonderful words of encouragement from first the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, the coverage in the Final Call newspaper, Vogue Italia, the UAE National newspaper articles, and our mention in over 300 articles featured in Italian media publications was a true blessing. So much has resulted from Al Nisa Designs being exposed on an International level. In September I was informed that Al Nisa Designs had been chosen to be featured in a world exhibit “Muslims and Fashion Now” As mentioned, information about our exhibition is now available on the Museum’s website: https://deyoung.famsf.org/exhibitions/contemporary-muslim-fashion.
. It will open in September of this year at the prestigious San Francisco Fine Arts Museum and will end in January of 2019. After that it will be in Museums in Russia and Europe for 6 Months. “All Praises due to Allah.”
In October of this year I was extended a very special invite to host" Al Nisa Night of The USA Catwalk with a delegation of modest muslims designers who were slated to be a part of a fashion week event hosted by Al Nisa Designs. This was truly a blessing from Allah, a unique experince for my fellow designing muslim sisters to share an International platform in an enviorment of fashion influencers from around the world.
Our number 1# challange as designers would be obtaining the necessaey capitol to support the designers and models involved." There are so many moving parts to a fashion week event, registration cost, production cost of collection, travel , lodging etc. But these kind of opportunties are truly a once in a lifetime event for an up and coming modest designer from our community.
So I am once again launching a Go fund me effort to support this upcoming initiative in Torino for our debut. I'm humbling seeking your support with a donation. With your help we will be able to showcase fellow muslim designers 5 MGT and 1 sister from the Al Islam community. Our road to Torino 2018 " A New Dress, A New Mind, A new Women! The go fund me goal is $20,000.
