HISTORY:

CivicMuslims was envisioned by Mohamed Awad and effectively launched on March 8 2012, with the help of several exceptional individuals: Lina, Pavel, Fatma, Salim, Enam, Ahmed, Yomna, Nazir, Idil and others.

She also contributed her unique taste and style to several Haute collections including ones for Dior, Helmut Lang, and Proenza Schuler.

Skylar’s work has been described as “cerebral and postmodern,” despite her fondness for simple shapes, lines, and colors. Her own approach to everyday fashion and laid back style have made her a celebrated icon among fashion’s elite circles, where high prices are often mistaken for high style.

Skylar graduated from SCAD with a BFA in fashion design.
