Ellynur and Illi founded their company, Ghania, on the shared belief that all women should be fabulous. The idea for such ambition came when they were both expecting as first-time mothers.

The Malaysian fashion designer duo, who are also siblings, started creating and designing for the sake of their passion and had managed to get their works into stores. 

Now, they have their own company which they still actively work on.

The name of their company, Ghania, means natural beauty. The collection hopes to make its wearers feel graceful and elegant.

Ellynur states, “Each piece represents our labor of love. We draw inspiration from life and the little things that make us happy, and our designs incorporate and reflect those feelings perfectly.”
