A sister a friend a great fashion designer!! She started her fashion brand " Toksic" a year back and since then she has been successfully working on making it all happen. She has been selling her work since then at boutiques in Dubai ( Amzan, Cube, etc..) I just love how she combines different material together, the Bright fun colors adds great character to the style. Her personality is very much reflected in her designs, and I personally believe a designer always reflect his personality and style on his work. I would like to share little paragraph I copied from her website .. and Ofcourse without the support and help of her great mother she wouldn’t have made her dream happen.
"toksic is strictly high street fashion. it's about women expressing their individuality through the way they dress up, their behavior and their attitude. it’s about personality, character and self-expression. being unique, confident and courageous. dressing up in bold colors and loud prints. getting attention. getting the killer-look; the look that "kills".

Salem kamal studied with me at the American University of Sharjah, holding a BA in graphic design and currently works at creative intelligence, an international branding consultancy based in Dubai. Back in school, he always enjoyed involving characters with power, as you see in his work. I like his printmaking work, always bussy and there is always something going on in the background. He is so into japanese illustrationss...Well, c'mon salem you should keep working on ur character design, who knows maybe you could publish a book with all ur designs one day :)
oh and his water color work is awesome, he's really good at paying attention to details.
