Hessa Al Falasi said, “I feel fashion and style is what really completes the look of a beautiful woman. Besides, the beauty of the fabrics has had a great impact in drawing my attention to the field. My love of the field started when I was a little girl when I used to make dresses for my Barbie dolls,” she said.
Hessa, a 21 year-old and student at Zayed University, said: “I have specialised in teaching children because I love to learn about children and families, and I also took courses in fashion.”
Her passion for fashion also drove her to fashion design courses to enhance her skills, and she had courses in Dubai international school for art.
“I always aspired to be in the fashion industry but I used to procrastinate [on] the idea. However, the credit goes to my friend and partner Hind Al Mutawa who encouraged me to create our brand Nabrman. I owe her a lot, because she believed in me.” Hessa is a partner at Nabrman boutique in Jumeirah.
