She expressed her empathy towards the financial pressures parents face these days, particularly in affording school supplies and celebrating Ramadan and Syawal.

I started the sale of Hari Raya attire for kids around January, understanding some parents’ desire for early preparations. Sales were conducted via live streams on Facebook, with prices set between RM20 and RM150 per piece, varying by design.” she told.

Her aim is to make kids feel happy

According to Sinar Harian, Mahani began selling her clothes early this year, understanding that parents need time to financially prepare for purchasing baju raya.

Additionally, Mahani has earned the nickname ‘Crazy Tailor’ because her designs are exquisite and luxurious, yet priced so affordably that they are hardly a strain on the wallet.

Her motive was deeply rooted in her personal journey as a single mother, where financial constraints limited her children’s wardrobe to donated garments.

Inspiring journey

This experience ignited her determination to ensure that all children could dress beautifully, regardless of their family’s financial standing. She learned to sew via YouTube tutorials, enabling her to craft new, luxurious clothes for her children.

This endeavor wasn’t just about clothing; it was about providing joy and self-esteem to children who, like hers, faced economic barriers. As of now, Mahani told that she has successfully sold over 10,000 pairs of children’s clothing, all of which she crafted personally with the assistance of a few employees.
