SAFIYA NOOR MAHOMED Baie Abayas Block 2

Safiya Noor Mahomed, 25, lives in the heart of Limpopo where she began crafting bespoke evening wear and other custom pieces in 2016.

Her online, made-to-order brand, Baie Abayas (founded in early 2017) embraces a casual, colourful and comfy approach to dresses and outerwear.

Safiya’s androgynous aesthetic encapsulates subtle eastern flavours and a contemporary finish which forms the signature handwriting behind Baie Abayas. She aims to design garments that are timeless and nonseasonal.
