    And indeed, the success of ‘A Tale of Two Tailors’ will bring hope. Helping widows to earn a decent income to build a brighter future for their children.

    Also supporting the event are fashion internship students. Rima has given students an excellent opportunity to assist in the creation of the collection.

    In addition, funds from the event will provide widows training and equipment to start a selling business. Including sewing machines and materials.

    As a result, funds will help the widows to develop their potential as talented tailors.

    Recently, Rima visited Bangladesh alongside Islamic Relief to work on the projects. The gifted designer supported the widows with their embroidery products. Her tailoring expertise skills were seen as an encouragement.

    She describes this as:

    “An experience of a lifetime, and a push towards the greater good,” as mentioned in her Bangladesh Youtube video.

    She further added on her Instagram account: “Classic tools & simple lives stitching together a better future.”

    Rima now seeks to raise funds to provide for the needy. Her partnership with Islamic Relief will represent to them new opportunities from across the UK.

    Both Islamic Relief and Rima share a vision of fundraising, which emerges from fashion and social media platforms.

    Offering this unique runway movement, ‘A Tale of Two Tailors’ will develop into an exceptional catwalk, supporting a charitable trust, representing social media personalities, and assisting fashion students.
