Thanks to My Salaam for featuring UNDER-RAPT!
Creator of UNDER-RAPT, Yasmin Sobeih interviewed by Alicia Buller for mysalaam.com. The article talks about where Yasmin draws her inspirations from, her passion to combine modest wear, culture and social values with western trends and lifestyles and her vision for her brand.
“I’m inspired by brands like Kanye’s … a lot of the oversized trends in his ranges are applicable to Muslims and non-Muslims,” said Yasmin Sobeih, the British-Egyptian founder of Under-Rapt. “There is a huge market for fashion-led sportswear.”
The Manchester-born designer says that there is a particular growing demand for sustainable eco-sportswear.
“Nike doesn’t do it. No one does it. There is hardly any fashion-led, eco-friendly sportswear for the market or the Muslim market,” she said.
Armed with a master’s degree from the London College of Fashion, Yasmin created Under-Rapt as a trend-focused, ‘athleisure’ brand that hopes to join the surge of growing British trends for sustainability, sportswear and modest wear.
