Costume/Fashion Designer, College for creative studies
in Detroit, MI
My name is Nabeela Najjar and I am from Detroit, Michigan. I was homeschooled up until college and attended the College for Creative Studies where I recently graduated in December of 2016. At CCS I majored in the crafts department with a focus in Fiber and Textiles design. In Fibers I dabbled around with fashion design until I realized I had more of an interest in costume design. Today I consider myself to be both a fashion designer as well as a costume designer. However, my heart leans more toward costume! I make garments that are not meant to be worn everyday. My work usually has a concept and I am heavily influenced by dreams and nature and I believe that shows in my work.
