“There is a strange juxtaposition of cultures in my life and I’m constantly looking for that strange beauty in what I design. There is a side of me obsessed with simplicity and the beauty of the unseen that is very Jordanian, and then this rebellious, rather eccentric aspect that is the sum of growing up in Sweden.”
