* Various arts

The more the design combines more than one art and artist, the more unique the beauty it becomes.

In the collection, Hassanein presented a new winter design and collaborated with artist Rehab Zakaria on it.

"She loves patchwork, combining Capetonian style with the needle and batik materials in a distinctive way that combines art and beauty,” the designer said.

* Magnificent colors

The art of batik depends on printing the fabric in the batik technique with overlapping colors according to the taste of each artist.

Hassanein relied on printing the African design on white and non-white fabric and also presenting cheerful spring colors as well as different materials such as satin and plain cotton.

*Various designs

Since the collection arrives during the holy month of Ramadan, the designer was keen to present heritage-inspired designs.

She took inspiration from Moroccan heritage and presented a distinctive Moroccan design. Hassanein also designed different dress lengths, ranging from short, suitable for young ladies, to long modest dresses.

Finally, this distinctive collection combines art, refined taste, and originality in every design.
