Find Out Why Nahed El Sebai’s Kojak Dress is Sparking Controversies on Social Media!

Nahed El Sebai is trending across different social media platforms after her latest look from the opening ceremony of the Aswan Women Film Festival sparked controversy. Nahed chose a dress designed by leading Egyptian designer Mohannad Kojak from a collection that he launched three months ago.

The collection was inspired by his late grandmother’s house, and Nahed picked one of the ready-made dresses. The look was very unique and special, but it sparked a lot of conversations, with some people making fun of the dress looking like a “coverta” (common design for bed covers in Egyptian homes).

We reached out to Kojak, and he stated that the whole thing wasn’t intended as a media stunt, as in fact, he didn’t know that she chose that specific dress for the red carpet.

Fashion is a way of expression, and it differs from one person’s taste to another. One can easily argue that Kojak’s collection is actually really beautiful and artistic, and brings a nostalgic feel. Kudos to the promising Egyptian designer for not caring about the negative comments, and still doing what he does best.
