“Bil arabi” by Nadine Kanso

As a noted photographer and award-winning haute jewellery designer, Beirut-born and Dubai-dwelling Nadine Kanso is modern Arabia’s creative ambassador to the world. Be it her calligraphy inspired precious adornments or gritty artworks depicting contemporary Middle Eastern life, her message remains constant :‘Celebrate your Heritage’

With designs formed from stylized depiction of personal messages and emblazoned with precious stones, handcrafted BilArabi pieces are not only modern heirlooms but also offer a fresh view Arabia. In that aspect, the label is an extension of Nadine Kanso, the young photographer, who found her creative voice in the streets of Lebanon and UAE, documenting realties that were far removed from the typical media hyped images from the region.
