2015 !  A year of publicity and incredible new projects.

The year started with a bang by winning the Best Accessories Designer in Miami Award by RAW Artist, an national organization that highlights and discovers new talent in the field of art, music, and fashion. accessories_cityfinalist_217327 (1) We were fortunate to participate in one of their events with our very first fashion show in 2014 and at the end of that year got nominated for the prestigious award of being named a finalist in the Best Accessories Designer category.  Then we got the great news we had won early in the year!  Needless to say I was thrilled !

Later on we signed with a PR agency to get our brand out there and in the eyesight of editorsLat magazine new collage 2, stylists, celebrities and fashion bloggers. We were rewarded with our fist feature in Latina Magazine with our popular animal print scarf .  It was featured as a “hot and trendy” item for the summer.

After that came features in  Newsday, Prevention Magazine, Pregnancy and Newborn, The Outfit and posts in fashion bloggers The Fashion Diva and The Architect of Style.  In addition we were part of the welcome back swag bags for the The Rock’s HBO show Ballers and we gifted the Broadway performers at The Lilly Awards Broadway Cabaret performance with a custom made Amoura gift.   Fashion Mannuscript, a fashion trade industry publication ran a 2 page layout on us that was more than we expected and huge honor too.

On the creative side we launched our 4th collection with many unique pieces using a variety of gemstones and crystals.  DSC_0735 As well as creating  additional bracelets for men too. Using ebony and dark brown wooden beads several of the designsDSC_0980 were quite chic and popular with the guys!

2016 looks like it will be filled with many good and promising projects as well. New clients to please and keep beautiful in Amoura accessories, new partnerships abroad and a new collection (our 5th one!!) to work on while in Egypt.  Going to Egypt inspires me and gives me infinite joy to see that mystical country again.  To bask in its culture, to see my friends who have become part of my life and to continue living my dream.

Happy 2016 to all !
