Sheila Rashid is a fashion designer based in Chicago, Illinois. The 27-year-old is the founder of her own clothing brand that caters toward androgynous style. Her signature is a drop crotch pant—“a new way of design that brings an edge to the classic approach of the harem pant”—that comes off as both feminine and masculine. While her designs are simple and sleek, none of them are ever boring or ordinary.
Nearly two years ago, one of Rashid’s pieces was worn by none other than Zendaya Coleman. Rashid designs and produces every piece by herself with no extra help—every stitch, cut, and pattern is handmade with love. She’s a woman ahead of her time with a mind solely focused on the future.
