Never give up on your dreams: Dominae
Beautiful designs that were presented in a well wrapped box with a makeup gift bag and, more important, a smile.
We were delighted to have met the lovely lady behind Dominae, Mai Khaddam.
P: How did it all start?
M: Since I was a little kid I always wanted to be a designer. The word was not currently known as it is now. My friends always asked me what do you want to do when you grow up and I always answered them: A tailor; so they made fun of me.
Then I grew up and went to college as my father wished, but it was always inside of me.
Later my husband supported me to fulfill my dream and I did.
P: What kind of education did you have?
M: I took many courses and went to Italian fashion academy.
P: How did you came up with your brand’s name?
M: I was riding in the car with my friends and I told them “did you know that Dominae means lady in Latin” and they all liked the idea ; so we decided to stick to that name.
P: How is that reflected in your designs?
M: My designs are classic in new modern way. I tend to use different fabrics, each piece is made of at least 3 types of fabrics.
P: Does this mean you don’t make any casual wear?
M: Oh! but I do make casual wear. You can see the dresses in light fabrics full of colors.
P: You have a lovely team. Tell me more about it.
M: They are all my friends and family who came to help and support me on this day.
P: Who inspires you ?
M: Soad Hosni and Faten Hamama are my favorite actresses.
P: Who is your favorite designer ?
M: Chanel, of course. She invented something; I hope to do the same one day.
Well, we are all sure you will one day.
