Tell us a little bit about yourself, how do you spend your time?
I love keeping myself busy with various projects. I make clothing, furniture and art for Boho, so I’m always designing or planning for my projects.
I’m also a co-founder of a restaurant called Urban Kitchen..so that keeps me busy too. In between all of this I love spending time with my family and close friends.
Tell us something about your clothing line ‘Boho By Sania’ ?
I started this line six years ago because I could never find the type of clothes I wanted to wear here.
I started it on a smale scale as a fun project and now MashaAllah it’s grown quite a bit. But still have a long way to go.
You have a very balanced palette and structured design in your clothes, where does the inspiration come from ?
I’m inspired by everything around me. I can’t pinpoint on one specific thing or person that inspires me. That being said, I tilt more towards contemporary design.
Who are your style icons, and do you have a favorite accessory?
I have no style icon..I think everyone should style and express themselves the way they want to. One shouldn’t be bothered to copy anyone else’s style.
