Egyptian design duo siblings Aya and Mounaz Abdelraouf launched their brand Okhtein – meaning, appropriately, “sisters” in Arabic. The duo had a vision to bring true luxury back to their home country as well as drawing international attention to the inherent refinement of Egyptian artisanship, sensing a gap in the market for true luxury accessories produced in Egypt. Launched in 2013, Okhtein seeks to set new trends, promoting Egyptian artistry as well as presenting new designs to the world. Recently, the brand was selected for the 2016 DDFC/Vogue Arabia fashion prize.

Okhtein is showing as part of the International Fashion Showcase 2017, to find out more, click here.
