Marabo: New Fashions for Muslim Women
July 28, 2006 § 23 Comments
F.I.T. graduate and former NYU student, Brooke Samad has applied her childhood passion of sewing with her faith and come up with new clothing styles and trends for Muslim women. Samad used $8,000 of her savings to finance Marabo, Inc. with the intention on creating modest clothing that remain stylish and chic.
Samad started the company in 2001 because of two factors, her religion and the fashion industry’s lack of attention to modest fashions. As a Muslimah Samad found it difficult when shopping for modest clothing and had this to say about the frustrations of clothes-shopping,
“Muslim women who choose to wear modest clothing often have a hard time finding clothes that are still stylish, she said.” (B. Samad qtd. in AM New York)
I have visited the website which is found at www.maraboonline.com and the clothes are very beautiful. Drop by the website and check them out for yourself.
