Here’s what to know about the designers who are making the pop-up a magnet for jewellery aficionados who love touches of Arabia until October 31.
Aisha Baker: The Dubai-based luxury jewellery brand is a collab between Aisha Baker and Hoonik Chang. Aisha Baker’s collection conjures up childhood fairytales, where enchanted forests, mysterious castles and bewitching characters of folklore are centrestage. Every piece is a reinvention of the classics with the 21st century woman in mind.
Five 2: Handmade in Dubai and founded by two young friends, Five 2 is a unique yet versatile line of delicate 18-carat gold rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces and anklets encrusted with precious and semi-precious stones. The debut collection, The Cosmic Way, is inspired by the notion of wearing something astronomically-inclined.
Gafla: A contemporary fine jewellery brand based in Dubai, Gafla’s founders came together with a shared passion for the pioneering philosophy of their Emirati heritage and the role this can play in cutting-edge modern jewellery design. The brand is reinventing the countless stories and symbols of Arabian traditions and creating unique and stunning jewels for the international collector.
Shamsa Alabbar: Shamsa Alabbar’s collection takes traditional Arabic calligraphy that has been an integral part of the culture and reworks it to create something unusual and beautiful. Created for design appreciators, this experimental jewellery line is edgy, modern, geometric and distinctive.
