Royaye Sefid III – ”Mayalu” 2013
I think Leila Hafzi must be my new and favourite designer. It’s not just the beautiful dresses, it’s her work ethics as well. Her production is set in Nepal, where she has established an ethical and eco conscious business, an working environment, which acknowledges the human rights, she gives jobless women in Nepal a place to work. Empowering them to have a job through fashion, giving them “pride and economic freedom” as she says in her introduction video, on her home page.
This is very admirable. It’s so respectful what she does, and I really look up to her as a designer-student and as a person. She does something unique, she makes a change out there, co-operating it with what she loves. Design. Wedding dresses.
I was lucky enough to get an invite to her 2013 bridal show, because I’m looking for my perfect dress “The dress”, “the one-and-only”, without saying further…but, sadly for me, amongst all these beautiful and gorgeous dresses, I could not find the one that screamed my name. I think I’m looking for more laces. But I might just pick Leila Hafzi for my brides-made dresses. Which means I have to start saving…soon. But then again, there will be more collections from this talented designer. I am so looking forward to them!
