Fashion Design – Womens Ready To Wear

“I marvel at the hidden language of textiles and have an eye for bringing the best out of each fabric, creating elevated refined day and evening styles for women. My work is influenced by a diverse and well rounded cultural, educational, professional and artistic background. My new brand “Shabouli Eclectic” was born in San Antonio during the first TFII Silver Jacket Entrepreneurship Program. I am proud to be part of the growing fashion scene of San Antonio and intend to give to this community as much as I receive.”
