Tunisian actress, Hend Sabry launched her first fashion brand, "Second Chance". The label was established in the UAE with the collaboration of fashion designer Rym Turki.
Sabry teased the brand last January, saying: "I’ve been granted so many second chances in my life that I’m so grateful for. I’m working on something that's so close to my heart and I can’t wait to share it with you on the 22nd of January. In the meantime, go follow @secondchanceonline,"
The 43-year-old star took to Instagram to celebrate the launch of her fashion line.
"When @rym.tu and I first thought about #SecondChance, we wanted to empower women in the Arab World by bringing them fashion that is made for ladies with strong personalities who want to flaunt their colors, own their identity and culture, are unapologetically themselves, and are effortlessly elegant and want to feel good in their own skin without bothering with extra bling, and that's how the label was born," Sabry said in a statement on Monday.
The Tunisian actress used the name Second Chance for her project in season one of Netflix's series “Finding Ola”.
Sabry, born on November 20, 1979n is one of the most prominent actresses in the Arab world, with several successes under her belt across a career of more than 50 works in cinema, television, and radio.
Several of her movies achieved massive commercial success, including "Blue Elephant 2" and "Kira and El Gin", both of which broke Egyptian box office records. She also received much critical acclaim for her performances, winning more than 30 awards so far, including five for her performance in the film "Asma" (2011), in which she embodied a woman suffering from AIDS and its associated societal stigma.
Sabry has been known to seek out roles in which she sheds light on critical social issues, especially with regard to women, cooperating with international organizations such as the United Nations Food Program whenever possible.
Furthermore, she won the Medal of Arts and Literature from the French Ministry of Culture and works as an ambassador for a number of international brands through her company Salam Production.
