The non-profit Blue Meets Blue was born out of a combination of a “passion for fashion” and graduate studies in international psychology.

Shahd Alasaly was researching her Master’s thesis on what happens to refugees upon arrival to the U.S., when she co-founded Blue Meets Blue, which hires refugee women in the U.S. to make fashion. The company prioritizes flexible working hours at fair wages.
