Nur Hanis, along with her husband Haikal Aziz, are the Singaporean owners of Meem Clothings, an online apparel boutique based locally.

Selling mostly hijabs and scarves, they base their collections on the key principles of simplicity and modesty.

And their latest collection – the Suminagashi series – is designed exclusively for the first ever Tokyo Modest Fashion Show.

 The designs are inspired by the Japanese marbling art of ink dropping, or “Suminagashi”, the eponymous title of the collection, resulting in a seamless amalgamation of the two cultures.

We’re still proud of you, though, Nur Hanis, for putting Singapore on the international fashion map! Keep doing what you’re doing.
