Nawal Nasser has been doodling clothing designs that looked much different than her own mom’s clothes since she was a little girl. Now she’s bringing that flair to women with her new clothing line, Laylati Exclusive Fashion Apparel.
She says she hopes will empower women of all shapes and sizes with bright colors and patterns.
“I always felt that modest apparel didn’t have to be dull or drab, but could be designed to complement and celebrate a women’s feminine qualities,” she says.
It features locally sourced fabrics and tailoring by a former Syrian refugee. Nasser next plans a children’s line.
