Lebanese craftsmanship and talent are well known around the world, especially Lebanon being home to eminent fashion, footwear and jewelry designers.
Noor Fares is the creative “hand” behind her eponymous jewelry brand which she launched in 2009, using deserved talent and fascinating creativity to create one-of-a-kind items.
The Lebanese designer, a graduate of Central St Martins in London, is known for her colorful and modern artifacts, fusing ancient symbolism with contemporary styles.
Known as the “seasoned cultural nomad”, Noor draws inspiration from her travel adventures to create her designs, including splendid talismans, as shown in her use of symbolism from Hindu mandalas and Middle Eastern architecture.
She also incorporates sustainability and eco-consciousness into her designs. She uses gold from old refineries, handcrafted gemstones, and natural inclusions of beautiful crystals that embrace the purity and power of nature.
Noor has been the winner of several design awards, namely the Positive Luxury Awards in 2017 and 2018, and the COUTURE Design Awards in 2019.
Noor is also a philanthropist, supporting various charities. Proud of her roots, she reflects on Lebanese culture through her splendid creations.
Its collections have also been presented around the world, including Net-a-Porter, Bergdorf Goodman, Matches Fashion, etc.
