Safae ibrahimi is an embodiment of creativity. Prior to creating her pieces, she usually makes a sketch of them on paper. Carefully and delicately, she transforms these sketches into a masterpiece. Have a glimpse of her work below when she started out as a fashion designer in 2012.

Who Is Safae ibrahimi In A Nut Shell?

Safae ibrahimi is a young lady born and brought up in North Africa, Morocco. Her childhood years were fun to say the least. Interestingly, she loved painting and drawing ever since she was young. She also had a chance to accompany her father as he traveled to different parts of Morocco. This enabled her to experience the different traditions of the Moroccan people.

The diversity of the Moroccans is evident in the number of major languages that they use as a country. The two main languages spoken in Morocco are Arabic and French. However, Moroccan Arabic and Spanish are also widely used. Lately, English has also caught up slowly but surely since it started being taught in schools in 2002.

Her love for fashion and design led her to the runway where she has showcased many creations of her own. After finishing her degree, she immediately joined a fashion design school. Watching the Haute Couture International and Moroccan Caftan fashion shows gave her the final push that she needed to make up her mind on following her heart on becoming a fashion designer. She says her mum is her greatest support and partner in her venture. She is the strength behind the luxury brand that meets simplicity.

What Did It Take Safae To Become A Star?

As the old adage states that practice makes perfect, Safae embarked on a journey to put into practice her talent. She started out in the textile industry and worked as a junior designer at DALI group. Later on, in 2010, she joined ‘Moroccan touch’ of SMADEC. Her skills as a stylist and designer grew quickly and she went ahead to become a designer at Diamantine, an international fashion house. It did not take long before her star started shining followed by a streak of success stories. At Diamantine, she managed the artistic collections which were showcased and sold internationally.

After working on and understanding her design style, she decided to grow her career further. The trust and partnership she acquired from companies like Soft Group and Fashion TV Morocco, ushered her into an exciting path of starting her own brand. Safaeibrahimidesigns, which aims at presenting glamor and elegance in fashion design, was born. She is determined to keep on rising and nothing will put her down.
