Up and Coming: Sumayyah K. Lafraie

A few Thursdays ago (11/11), I hurried after my last exam for the year back to my apartment, finished packing my things, made sure y place was clean as a whistle and called my aunt to pick up a few of my things to keep at her place over the summer.

I was excited to leave Wellington for 2 reasons, 1) I was going home after 7 months, and 2) I was attending my dear friend Sumayyah's graduation fashion event. She's been studying towards her Graduate Diploma in Fashion Studies this year, and this event would showcase the work of all the students enrolled in the school of fashion at the institute.

I'd seen her designs a few months back on a previous visit, and had known that what she was making would be special. At the time, she'd made the prototype of one dress and i had pretty much fallen in love with it then and there, and i couldn't wait for the real things to be made and showcased.

My dear readers, this is one designer you have to keep an eye out for. She is very talented, mashaAllah, she's dedicated and is one of the most amazing people I know. Her work is impeccable, thanks to her very close attention to detail.

I'll let her three dresses speak on her behalf, presenting her first collection:

InshaAllah, we will see more and better from this young and bright designer. She's definitely a force to reckon with. And my dear readers, i shall keep you updated with information regarding her endeavours in the future inshaAllah.

The name to remember is Sumayyah K Lafraie
