What I love about London is that around every corner a new designer is emerging, we have a culture that allows creativity and inspires a nation.

Im a very lucky person to know so many wonderful creative people and another lady in my life has just stormed the jewellery world with an inspirational collection DURRAH.

background

DURRAH is a newly established British luxury jewellery label offering an eclectic fusion of British and World influences- The creative force behind DURRAH is London-based designer Durrah Khalil. Who worked for Tiffany & Co in London before establishing her own business.

Durrah says “A lot of my designs are influenced by my travels, which are another passion – but I always keep a thread of London running through all my jewellery, as this is the heartbeat of the DURRAH brand. Patterns on doors, wallpaper, floors, tiles, fabrics, furniture and flowers have all influenced pieces I’ve designed. In Paris I’ve seen sewer covers with interesting patterns on them – inspiration really can come from anywhere”.

“I like to work away from home and out of my usual element, as I find this frees me from boundaries and the day-to-day chores which can really stifle creativity. Mostly I try to avoid looking at jewellery when I’m in the creative zone, which helps me clear my head and tap into my own original ideas. A lot of jewellery out there simply repeats other people’s designs or the current fashion, and this is something I want to avoid. I do try to push the boundaries with my designs, but am also aware that they have to be wearable.”
