As a sudanese woman raised in Melbourne, I found It difficult to find culturally appropriate clothing that matched my bold and creative soul. This has inspired me to bring out an edgy and street aesthetic to the modest fashion industry which is also more inclusive and gender neutral. Original print development made by exploring various print materials as Digital printing, block printing, spray painting and acrylic paints. These prints are a key aspect of my design practice which elevates the urban streetwear. With my strong interest In streetwear and experience growing up, I have built “SHABAH” a modest and street inclusive brand targeting both men and women who are modest for religious and personal choices.
Apocalyptic Attire Is a high end and luxurious 5 body collection that Is inspired by the clashing of military doomsday wear and streetwear. Apocalyptic Attire takes the elements of the flow-y and oversized silhouettes seen on streetwear and clashing It with the harsh lines, bold patterns and hardware from military wear and equipment.
Apocalyptic Attire Is a collection that is gender neutral, therefore very versatile. Garments from each body can be paired and styled with one another to create a completely new body, giving you endless outfits to wear. Also focusing on Modesty, the collection features oversized, flow-y and non body hugging silhouettes, giving both modest women and and men a ware-able modest collection. Modesty is also achieved by the use of the layering technique where the layering of multiple garments can give you a skin covered hype beast look.
A strong contrast of black and white is seen throughout Apocalyptic Attire, with a bright fiery red and shades of grey seen in the last two bodies of the collection, brining in some strong excitement. Styling is kept minimal to keep it from clashing with the garments of the collection.
