Celine has always been passionate about design & self-expression in the fashion industry. Born in Canada to Lebanese parents, she was surrounded by artists, musicians, and Middle Eastern grace — all of which formed the basis of NAFSI's aesthetic. She moved to Dubai to pursue a career in Fashion and although her passion for the art was strong, she quickly discovered the detrimental impacts that fast fashion may have on the world. In 2017, she left her corporate job in the industry and made a promise to create high quality, handcrafted garments that are kind to our skin & environment. And in 2020, NAFSI was born.
