This designer from Oman has created a dress using the language of the blind
December 11, 2017
Ruqaya Al Harthi, a fashion designer from Oman, is behind a wonderful initiative to design a dress with Braille.
Ruqaya has released a collection with dresses with important dates and patriotic phrases printed on them. One piece in this collection has a purpose.
The dress had raised dots wrapped around its cuffs, stitched at various levels. The entire national anthem of Oman is inscribed on the cuffs in Braille.
The designer did this because she wanted to find a way to to give back to society through fashion and bring some joy to people in the blind community by giving them an opportunity to celebrate the country's national day without feeling excluded.
She visited the local blind institute to bring her idea to life. The centre helped her by translating the national anthem in Braille.
