The new jewels by Noor Fares, awarded at the Couture Design Awards 2019 ♦ ︎
The year 2019 must have a particular astral ascendant for Noor Fares, a Lebanese designer (her father is a former deputy prime minister of Lebanon), born in Paris and residing in London. She is convinced that supernatural forces act alongside daily reality, and must have probably thought that the triumph at Couture in Las Vegas is not a coincidence. The designer won, in fact, in the Best in Colored Gemstones Below $ 20,000 category at the Couture Design Awards. In fact, she certainly does not lack creativity, perhaps due to her family origins.
Hala, her mother, was an artist known for his inclination to wear mismatched shoes. The grandmother was a creative and aunt Sonia Fares a fashion designer as well as former Miss Lebanon. The aesthetic research of the British naturalized designer is linked to the belief that stones also bring positive energy, as in the Prana collection, which follows the Chakra collection. The jewels always are uses stones in a creative way, but also in a vaguely alien way, as if they were the result of the work of a designer who has just arrived on Earth. Perhaps this is why they won the Las Vegas jury. Giulia Netrese
