Margherita (Ghita) Abi-Hanna launched her own line of contemporary jewelry in 2010 after graduating with a master degree in accessories design from Domus Academy in Milan. Her eponymous brand Margherita strives to create unique designs, for the most part carefully hand-crafted by Lebanese artisans. Her objective is to develop pieces with a value beyond the purely visual and decorative aspects, by working on the emotional and symbolic realm. Margherita’s designs incorporate architectural lines through different material, offering hand made, timeless items. The company’s fashion forward approach targets a trend-setting customer, courageous enough to stand out and wear bold statement pieces. Margherita’s debut collection was selected for the 2010-2011 season of Starch Foundation and has exhibited during Berlin, Milan and London Fashion Weeks and her work has been featured in many fashion publications including Elle Oriental, L’Officiel Levant and the German Vogue website as well as in Deanna Farneti Cera’s book “Fashion Jewellery: Made in Italy”. She was also a finalist in the ITS 2012 Jewelry competition held in collaboration with Swarovski in Trieste.
