Bridal designer Sabina Motasem has been helping to support the NHS during the pandemic by swapping sewing silk wedding dresses for leading the Islington and North Hackney Scrub Hub, an initiative where hundreds of scrubs are being made by experienced and professional volunteers working safely within the guidelines of the lockdown.
Sabina tells us that like many in the bridal industry, they have temporarily closed their doors, but have adapted and are helping brides plan their weddings for next year with virtual appts, sample sales and styling advice. The new Nouveau couture collection is soon to be launched with dresses ranging from £,1950 to £4,000 and the debut sustainable and vegan collection will be out later this year offering a new range of ultra-modern dresses not only kinder to the planet, but on the pocket too with prices ranging from £900 to £1,400.
To view the collection, visit https://www.motasem.co.uk and to sponsor Sabina to help cover the material, delivery and running costs to make the scrubs, approximately £20 per set with extra proceeds donated to NHS Charities Together, visit https://www.gofundme.com/f/9e8bs-making-scrubs-for-the-nhs
