We chose to reveal on Emirati Women’s Day to pay tribute not only to Hamda’s Emirati heritage but also to celebrate two women from different cultures joining forces to create unique works of art. We are entrepreneurial designers of the same age, brought up on the opposite sides of the world, Hamda in Abu Dhabi and me in Los Angeles, who built independent, female-owned brands, focusing on craftsmanship, true luxury and timeless designs. It’s an honour to work with such an incredibly talented visionary.”
Hamda Al Fahim continued: “When Tyler and I started discussing this special collaboration, we were both brimming with ideas. I have some experience in making handbags when I was very young, but I never got a chance to pursue it as my career. I am very excited to work so closely with a global name and creative designer like Tyler Ellis. Her creations go perfectly well with my collections and it is such a pleasure discussing new ideas and design concepts with her. We cannot wait to launch our collection”
