Her collection “Karuma” is a work in progress that she holds close to her heart as it is the culmination of her many years of work and life experience.
“I am very excited about my collection ‘Karuma.’ It represents minimalism and versatility, and it’s inspiration originates from geometry, mother nature’s earth tones and is rooted in both Moroccan and Japanese culture, Soad explained. I selected fabrics that best lend to draping while maintaining the structure necessary to clean lines and geometric harmony. My concept effortlessly blends earth tones, linen with leather accents, and beautiful eastern inspired silhouettes resulting in a collection that is versatile and complete in its simplicity with pieces that can be mixed and matched to the heart’s content.”

Her clientele additionally includes numerous designers and well-known celebrity stylists.
Soad concluded, “Karuma is primarily comprised of exclusive separates that can be mixed and matched, paired with styles ranging from contemporary to boho or accessorized in a way to always express one’s unique individuality. I specifically focused on cuts, shapes, and silhouettes that exude comfort, complement varying body types and reflect a style that I define as minimal, modern and edgy. I am proud of this collection as it is a reflection of my passion for fashion and my life experiences.”
