For the fifth episode on season two of Preserving Palestine, we spoke to Meera Albaba, the designer behind her namesake label, Meera Adnan. Meera is know for her whimsical, feminine and romantic designs tat pay an homage to the city she resides in, Gaza. Meera shares her insight from personal experience on why it is impossible to operate a brand from within Gaza, and shares why she wants people to value her for her talent, rather than as a way to support Palestine.
S2 Ep5 Meera Albaba: "I don't want people to buy from me just to feel better about themselves for supporting a Palestinian brand. I want people to buy my stuff because they value my art."
