The shawl is an additional layer over the clothes designed to keep the body warm, whether in spring or autumn.

As the blessed month of Ramadan arrived this year in a cold climate, Youssef presented distinctive and fitting designs, especially for shawls.

The shawls designs featured folklore figures such as Shahryar and Scheherazade, as well as various personalities from the Egyptian countryside, which was all made from the art of patchwork.

The designer also presented a variety of shawls in black and white.

* Very special fabrics

The designer relied on a group of local fabrics. She relied on velvet fabric on chamois, which is something different that fits this time of the year, where cold climate prevails.

She also relied on local Alaga cloth, which has a cotton thread and a silk twist, as well as on diamond chip cloth to provide distinctive pieces suitable for long and modest dresses or blouses that are suitable for Ramadan and other occasions as well as meets the desire for those who wish to wear designs that have Egyptian spirit and fingerprint.
