Gallery 2022 – Dureshehwar B.



Faras – is a collection inspired by and named after a female horse. This majestic animal is a being of power that symbolizes courage, freedom, confidence, triumph, and heroism that ties with the women I design for. There’s a stereotype that the Islamic faith is oppressive for women. In the West, hijab has become a symbol of perceived oppression. This collection was designed to shatter that label and also define the force of women of all types.
