Children's Apparels

Before painting, I use to design and sew little girls dresses. During that time I have models in the house ie my Safiyya and Ayesha and my little nieces. Now they are not little girls anymore and Hannah got all the hand -me-downs. I made only party dresses and I still keep them for Hannah to wear at parties or dinner functions and for memories sake. Since Hannah was born, I gave up sewing because of my fear of handling scissors, pins and needles while having a small baby crawling about. It was then that I took up painting.

Testing the market was great experience. Initially I managed to display the dresses for sale through a pharmacy. There were only 10 dresses then. Within 2 weeks, 8 were sold. That was encouraging. Later I supplied to some boutiques within Klang Valley.

In 2007 during Hannah's slumber party. her sisters organised a fashion parade as one of the activities and Hannah and her friends are taking the runway with my designs!
