Recently, my friend blogger, Dina Faoziah (her blog is NotesDina.wordpress.com) told me about Dina Torkia a.ka Dina Toki-O. Hehe... they both have the same name... what a coincidence! :)
Dina Faoziah gave me a link to Dina Toki-O's LookBook.
I straightly fell in love with Dina Toki-O's style... It's so refreshing and inspiring!
I love the structures of the clothes and how she mix and match pieces. Even some pieces of clothes in these shots are her own designs.
According to the interview done by The Modesty Movement in November 2010, Dina Torkia was born in Cairo City 21 years ago. Her ethnicity is white African/mixed race white British/Egyptian.
Dina also said that she has been designing her own clothing line, and is about to launch her collection and open a boutique or two this year, 2011.
You can read her full interview with The Modesty Movement here.
Wish I have a chance to interview her by myself... ;)
Recently, on February 12, 2011, she held a Global Extravaganza Fashion Show in City Hall, Cardiff, showcasing her designs. Photos of the Fashion Show are on her Facebook page.
