The wonders of Aina Beck Hussain.
Aina Beck Hussain the Great!
The Norwegian designer showed her Spring/Summer collection at New York fashion week to great reviews.
She has a soft spot in my heart b'cos aside from her great talent and amazing promise in the fashion industry, Aina hails from Bergen, the second biggest City in Norway (her mother is Norwegian & her father is from Pakistan) which is also my husband's home town!
The Parsons School of design master's graduate, already has the financial backing of no other than the famed fashion designer & President of the CFDA
(Council of Fashion Designers of America)
Diane Von Furstenberg!
Last year Autumn, Aina was chosen by English fashion designer, Sarah Burton who is currently the creative director of the fashion house Alexander McQueen, to show her collection at an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in memory of the late fashion designer Alexander McQueen.
Aina says and I completely agree, is "Fashion is important, we must have clothes for us every day. It creates identity & charisma as well as making us feel good" :-)
Based in New York City, she loves the energy of what the City has to offer and the unexpected surprises, for example, recording artist and fashion designer Kanye West showed up at her school!
(I wonder if he was with his significant other, Kim Kardashian!)
Anyway he loved one of her dresses and and only like Kanye would, considered her design.....DOPE! (cool baby)
Well done Aina and we look forward to seeing u at fashion week next season.
The City of Bergen say's hello and are so very PROUD of u.
