Since the launch of her brand in 1969, luxury jewellery designer Azza Fahmy has been known for her passion for heritage and storytelling, aiming to translate different cultures into wearable contemporary art.
Named as one of Egypt’s most influential women, Fahmy and her team have spent recent years travelling internationally as cultural ambassadors, holding more than 100 exhibitions worldwide and collaborating with designers at London Fashion Week.
For the company’s latest eight-piece, hand-made collection, the designer has focused on a place she feels personally connected to: Nubia, a historical city in the south of Egypt.
Prioritising intricate craftsmanship and original design, the Nubia collection of takes inspiration from the distinctive architecture and photographic archives of the city, elevated with champagne diamonds and semi-precious stones.
“This collection holds a very personal resonance, as the theme is reminiscent of ‘Houses of the Nile’ – my very first collection – which launched my design career. For ‘Nubia’ I was creatively drawn to the structure and characteristics of Nubia houses and that of the city”, Fahmy said of her design process for the range, which includes rings, earrings and necklaces. “It’s great to be able to celebrate the city through our jewellery.”
