DUBAI: Sotheby’s on Tuesday announced it will launch its first-ever jewelry series this month and the first guest designer to exhibit her creations is Brazilian Lebanese designer Nadine Ghosn.
The exhibition will be on show from March 13-15.
“I’m thrilled to be the first guest designer to Sotheby’s Modern & Contemporary Jewellery Series and to launch it officially in Dubai,” said the award-winning designer, whose A-list clients include Beyonce, Alicia Keys and Ariana Grande.
“It is my very first time exhibiting in the Middle East, and it is truly exciting — as is the unveiling of my new collection Youtensils,” Ghosn said in a statement.
Ghosn’s collection, along with some of her most famous fine jewelry pieces, will be available for in-person shopping for three days at Sotheby’s Dubai and will be on Sotheby’s website for a month.
The designer launched her brand in 2016.
In a previous interview with Arab News, Ghosn said that her love of accessories stems from her childhood, particularly when her father — the former Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn — would return with gifts from his travels. In her teens, she recalls, “I always spent my money on jewelry. I couldn’t care less about what I was wearing but I would always accessorize it in a specific way.”
Having majored in art and economics, Ghosn began her career in a New York consulting firm, followed by a rotational program at Hermès. Once she had gained a deeper understanding of craftsmanship, Ghosn turned down a major job offer to begin her own independent career path.
Over the years, a number of celebrities have been spotted wearing Ghosn’s pieces. Beyoncé wore the tongue-in-cheek Shut Up earring cuff for her 35th birthday celebrations, and Karl Lagerfeld has sported the Can You Hear Me? headphones necklace.
