Inspired by diverse Middle Eastern culture, the hand-crocheted raffia dress & patterned knit
hoodie scarf were both designed to celebrate traditional and progressive Arabic women’s fashion.
Arabic architecture and geographical elements influenced the pattern, texture, and color
development of the full circle dress and scarf.
The crochet patterns are inspired by elements of Islamic geometric shapes.
The white, gold, and sand colors are inspired by elements of the Arab desert,
signifying the beauty of nature.
The rigid texture of the raffia yarn gives the dress the structure required to stand out.
