Introducing Anne Marie Kirollos

Words by Marvin Maddix



Introducing Central Saint Martins ‘17 Graduate Collection by Anne Marie Kirollos.

Anne Marie K. an Egyptian designer inspired by a philanthropic approach of the stance of Egyptian women within society. She focuses on infusing the essence of female empowerment into feminine tailoring and elegance; while reviving dying Egyptian arts and crafts.

Voyage Aux Bords Du Nil 1940 features a selection of traditional craftsmanship depicting the modern 1940s of Egypt. It reinvents cultural orientalism in a way to help re-introduce the dying arts of Egypt to the Western world and beyond. The collection revolves around its choice of colour, inherited from the sceneries of Egypt with blues, greens, and mustardy oranges from the Montrebia flower. Each piece in the collection is developed from an accustomed technique that is still pursued by Egyptian women; including tulle bel telli,tent-making, glass-blowing, sadaf jewellery boxes technique, fishnets and many more. The aim of this collection is to help resuscitate wearing traditional craftsmanship of Egypt, with each look consisting a unique story of the arts, in effort of lowering the percentage of Egyptian poverty and improving women’s rights within society.


“My collection is the tale of a cosmopolitan, cultured woman who is taking a journey down the Nile River. As she travels, she stops in different cities, and consumes the cultures she encounters; making every outfit she wears a window to cities that are not fully explored by the West… nor by Egyptians themselves,” said Anne Marie K.
