Fashion Design has been my passion since childhood. This hobby remained hidden through my school and university years. The potential has been unleashed as of late, when I decided to enroll in a fashion institute to build a strong base and to put myself on track so that I can achieve my dream. I have finally got my Diploma in pattern making from Istituto Di Moda Burgo - Milano, and I'm now ready to embark on a new adventure in the fashion/costume design field. I hope this future adventure eventually leads me to switching my career from engineering to design.

STAINED GLASS This collection, as clearly shown, exhibits the stained glass and its themes, as portrayed in churches since the old days. The parts that make up the colored stained glass are made of PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride), and precisely cut by laser.

Some outfits have silk in them to reflect the transparency and softness of the glass. In addition, others have a peculiar dome shaped tail or shorts to stress the theme of churches architecture.

BIONIC This jumpsuit is based on the imagination I collected from a large spectrum of comic books and superheroes. The outfit is constructed of two jumpsuits. The outer one is made of synthetic Organza, and the inner one of Lycra.

A CHINESE DYNASTY The title of this collection is drawn from the rich ancient Chinese culture and its brightful history. This culture has tremendous elements to pick from. Those elements; whether pertaining to traditional clothing from that era, architectural art, or nature with its ingredients, combine to create a modern outcome that suits our days with a tasty touch from that wealthy past. The major Chinese elements I resorted to were: Chinese alphabets, hand fans, lanterns, gold dragons, pink flowers, lotus shoes and Hanfu robe. The Hanfu was renowned for its loose long sleeves, tight belt to fit all sorts of garments around the waist, aAZnd its cross collar wrapping the right lapel over the left. I transformed the belts into trendier ones and took out the long sleeves. I combined four colors; Black, Red, Pink and Gold, and used Silk, Satin and Gold Metal; which were very predominant in all the clothing back then. The gold Chinese alphabets and dragons, as well as the pink flowers are all embroidered.

TUTANKHAMUN This outfit is inspired by the Shendy; wraparound skirts worn in ancient Egypt by men. The Shendy was worn around the waist, typically extending to above the knees. I created this outfit from leftover fabric which was originally manufactured for couches and sofas. I tried to come up with a wearable design using the very small amount of fabric I had. I used Velcro to join the ends of both the crop top and skirt.

EMANCIPATION In this collection, I decided to tackle a very critical topic; The New World Order, this new system that we all live in is leading us nowhere but to complete darkness. The coming world tyranny requires total control over people's thoughts and movements, and to do this, it uses all the knowledge and every technological invention available to enslave mankind.

I integrated several elements that serve the concept into each of the designs. The Rope and the Cage for example give a strong indication of enslavement, while the white cotton represents freedom; which is stripped off every single organism. I used multiple colors of Charmeuse fabric to obtain a rainbow-colored dress which gives a clear manifestation of the sugar-coated lies that we unconsciously accommodate. The colored fabric starts with covering the head, and then flows downwards to cover the entire body parts representing the brainwash process. Not only are we enslaved and programmed, but also we are being monitored and controlled. Sadly, we will all be eventually barcoded! We have to break out of this dilemma before it’s too late. To portray this idea, I used the Barcode and I implemented the Dupioni fabric.

FIRMAMENT Grey skies turn to blue and vice versa. That’s what inspired me to create this dress that’s made from grey and blue sheer strips which all fall freely from the waist down.

ALEPPO This piece is basically inspired by the endless conflicts in the Middle East, highlighting the very recent deadly war in Syria. I personally was very affected and touched by the war scenes that I watched on TV and social media, and therefore, the idea of creating a design out of these sad events has always been there. This concept is translated into a ready-to-wear outfit using faux leather and electric wires. The faux-leather is cut into a number of variant sizes and different shapes, and these pieces are sorted from large to small and then gathered onto the bodice pattern to cover the body. Sorting the pieces from large to small represents the mass destruction of buildings in Aleppo, by which the building bricks break and fall apart ending up as extremely tiny pieces on the ground. Blackouts become frequent if not permanent in the aftermath of war, and darkness hovers over. To translate this idea, actual electric wires are implemented in the design. Front

EVOLUTION I really liked the idea of introducing a new element into my designs, the element being an embodiment of technology – The CD. I sprayed all CDs in a way that blends in with the color of the pleather (faux leather made from polyurethane) used. I punctured the CDs using a heated screw and attached them to the dress using gold-plated rings.

PARADOX Sometimes, life may seem easy and untroubled; on the contrary, it can get really out of control and everything feels just messy! I tried to embody this idea by cutting two asymmetrical opposite sides of the dress. I used two different kinds of fabric; leather with a smooth-shiny surface, and another mesh-matt textile, in order to display these two facets of life.

PARIS This collection is inspired by Paris, the capital of fashion. I associate this city with pastels and delicate hue, which I therefore used to express my vision. Various fabrics and colors are used to create the collection. Faux-Fur, Crepe Georgette, silver pleather and see-through PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) were used in different combinations to construct the pieces. Each design is identified with a famous landmark; for example, Tour Eiffel with its incredibly detailed steel structure is translated into various wearable designs by implementing the same structure of the tower using silver pleather, and cutting it into a number of silhouettes. The magical glass/steel structure of the Louvre is another historic monument that I decided to take advantage of to create other silhouettes.

TEARDROP This dress images the teardrop shape through its curvy cuts and slit. It’s made from navy velvet.

BETTA This jumpsuit is inspired from the wonderful orange-purple Betta fish (The Siamese fighting fish) with its radiant scales. Given the hostile and territorial nature of this species, I sort of transformed this quality into an armor-like bodice and sleeves. In order to reflect the bright and shiny color of this fish, I resorted to LamĂŠ fabric. Each scale-shaped piece is made separately and all the pieces are then gathered to overlap each other.
