1- Bakchic Label
First up on our Mediterranean journey is none other than Sofia El Arabi, the powerhouse behind The Bakchic Label—a name you might remember from our June 2022 DOTM feature. Hailing from Morocco, Sofia doesn't just design fashion; she tells a story of devotion to our planet. Each of her creations speaks of materials sourced responsibly and the power of renewable energy fueling the process.

Her meticulous eye for detail shines through in every bag she designs, adhering to the golden ratio for a harmonious aesthetic. With materials sourced from esteemed suppliers and factories linked to luxury giants, her brand is synonymous with quality and distinction. The LWG seal on the skins amplifies her commitment to sustainability, making every piece a masterpiece of conscious elegance.
3- Rus the brand
Speaking of Spanish visionaries, Inés and Patricia Gutiérrez, the dynamic duo behind Rus the brand, have crafted a fashion symphony that empowers women to curate their style.

Lastly, let's meet Kenza Vandeput, the Algerian-Belgian creative force behind Kasbah Kosmic.
