After the launch of its first Extraordinary Women campaign in 2020, Piaget returns to present “Extraordinary Encounters”; a series of episodes that celebrates extraordinary women who use their voices for good.
The Piaget Extraordinary Women concept brings together women from all walks of life who are using their experience and successes to mentor the next generation of Extraordinary Women and these moments are captured in the series.
The stories feature women from all around the world. Clémence Poésy, Wendy Yu, Balqees Fathi, Katherine Pooley, Noella Coursaris Musunka, Momoko Ando and Yeol Eum Son all discuss the idea of women empowering women and what it means. The different episodes narrate the encounters that shape the relationship between the mentor and their mentee, but also about their connection and mutual support.
One of the chosen ladies for the series is Emirati singer Balqees Fathi. She has had three re- cord-breaking albums and is a member of the UAE NSO Symphony Orchestra and a leading figure in women’s rights in the music industry. She also holds the title of United Nations Champion for Women’s Rights in the Middle East and became the first-ever Arabic singer to perform at a concert for women only and mix gender in Saudi Arabia. A mother and beauty entrepreneur, Balqees is dedicated to helping the progression of female empowerment.
Aside from Balqees, the chosen ladies come from many walks of life. Clémence Poésy is a French actress and model.
