The Harakat sisters will be opening a pop-up shop at the Middle East Now Festival this Friday, April 7th 2017. Born to a Moroccan father and a Lebanese mother, Nasrine and Sara Harakat have been designing jewellery from a young age. Sara and Nisrine, aged 24 and 20 respectively, study architecture and design in France. With the support of friends and family, they posted their jewellery creations on social media, generating a following that allowed them to sell their collections.
Eventually, the sisters were able to have their work featured at the Galeries Lafayette, an very well known French department store. This opportunity was truly a milestone achievement for the two sisters’ business. The unique inspiration behind their designs are their travels – from their hometowns in Morocco and Lebanon to Paris, Senegal, Iran, India and Turkey. In an interview with “Aujourd’hui, La Turquie”, the sisters explained that their increasingly internationally successful enterprise was at first a fun hobby they pursued alongside their studies; what began from a place of genuine passion made their dreams a reality.
What is even more interesting is that their surname – Harakat (حركات) – literally means “movement” in Arabic. “Harakat” is a name perfectly tailored to them, as the sisters constantly move from one physical place to another, and bring innovation and new shine to their designs.
Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to meet them, check out their collection, and perhaps take one of their creations home!.
