Ana Khouri – Thursday 27 September 2018 Brazilian Embassy, Paris
by Loanna Haseltine
Ana Khouri who showed her demi-couture haute joaillerie collection this Thursday in the Brazilian Embassy was a prized flower in the hothouse of the imperial grandeur of its setting in the Embassy.
Ana, who is also Brazilian, trained as a sculptor before moving into haute joaillerie.
It is no wonder. This collection’s delicate, often asymmetrical silhouettes shaped to drape organically around the feminine form.
Jewelry is my medium and to make it, by nature, is to be mindful of its techniques and the value of such fine materials. But this is secondary. The feeling I want to impart is one of radiance, in every sense: That of light, of emotion, of energy and, of course, that of beauty. – Ana Khouri
An array of colors in gradating tones became ribbons of cascading tones draping around fingers and ears. But not all was floral and soft feathers.
Other pieces such as earring loops detailed in chains tough and ready were objet d’art waiting to be worn. This is Khouri’s first demi-couture offering. Before only the rich and famous could afford such unique pieces.
Stepping out from the exclusive world of haute joaillerie she has retained all its integrity she has honed in her craft there.
An assured success awaits this gifted designer/artist.
