Hi! I'm Hawwaa (she/her) :) A 24-year-old Chicago-born Muslim, fashion designer, and digital artist from Minnesota.

I started sewing and designing at the age of 12 and began learning from various YouTube videos and tutorials while using my mother's old Hijabs as fabric. From there, I ran a fashion design and style blog called "Hello Hawwaa" and documented a variety of clothing and accessories I created from the years of 2013 to 2019.

After being the Second runner-up on Project Runway Junior Season Two in 2017 at the age of 17, I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and graduated in 2021 with my Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Design concentrating on Children's Wear. I founded my brand in my tiny Manhattan dorm room in 2019 during my sophomore year.

I currently work full time in the fashion industry while running HAWWAA Studios!

Hi! I’m Cilladean (They/Them) a 22-year-old performance and jewelry artist from California. 


I’ve had a deep love for fashion, jewelry, and beads since childhood. In December of 2020 I created Queer Tears Creations to help channel creativity energy and indulge in these special interests. I like to incorporate my interest in fandoms into my creations and especially love making custom jewelry for my customers!
