ANNE MARIE KIROLLOS
An Egyptian designer informed by a philanthropic approach of the position of Egyptian women within the society. Anne Marie K explores this notion by fusing empowered feminine tailoring and elegance with once dying Egyptian traditional arts and crafts in order to reinvent women empowerment and allow a woman to feel treasured in what she wears.
The tale of the voyage down the Nile in the 1940’s has manifested the Egyptian cities and the cultures they withhold into separate looks, all of which carry beautifully crafted materials and arts that convey the Egyptian history. Reviving such arts helps break extremist social norms by offering women socially acceptable professions as well as artisans with jobs older generations once practiced.
