Afaf… on staying true to her arab culture, to her values as a designer, and most of all… to HERSELF

episode #4

Afaf does not see herself as a “muslim poster-child”, but she certainly is a poster-child for knowing yourself and your values… and applying them to a new york city lifestyle. in her work as creative director of a faux fur brand, she understands that a sustainable approach needs flexibility and research while staying relevant to today’s culture. she also stays true to her arab culture and balances it with her “western” views. only by being honest and open with herself, could she be honest and open with her fiancé… who converted to islam for her.
