Ibtissam’s twenty years in Europe blossomed her desire for original expression. Following her move to Dubai, she began designing her own pieces. The interest she got from jewelry aficionados encouraged her to create and launch “La Collection Privée” to great critical acclaim. Her bold, original, colorful and fun work draws inspiration from the rich cultural fusion found in this crossroads of the world.
Using a harmonious combination of special cut precious stones, colourful gems and sophisticated mounting expertise La Collection Privee represents a touch of beauty and glamour that promotes class and elegance. Each handmade, limited piece is a statement for confident women who like to stand out from the crowd.
Ibtissam is considered one of the fastest rising young designers in the industry and was selected as the only Arab participant in the Eco Art Monaco exhibition that toured the world.
Last but not least, her latest piece, a stunning pendant, went under the hammer during an art auction held in aid of Princess Stephanie of Monaco’s Fight Aids charity.
