Whether it’s pinned to your hair or tied around your neck, purchasing a bow from Reem Buqais’ “The Bow project“ collection guarantees a smile in one of Bahrain’s orphanages. The ambitious and philanthropic fashion designer explains her project.
What’s the Bow Project?
It’s a line of carefully handcrafted bows designed to compliment a variety of different outfits to fit any style. I sew them myself and they can easily be pinned on clothing and accessories.
It was a limited time project where I teamed up with the top bloggers in Bahrain to launch an interactive social media campaign showing that a bow is for everyone and can be worn almost anywhere. I sold the bows online through social media as well as at the first week of Market 338, and donated a percentage of sales to Al-Sanabel Orphans Care Society, which takes care of the holistic needs of orphans.
Why did you choose Al-Sanabil?
It is the only charitable society that cares for orphans, so my contribution will make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate children and their families.
