The world of "Fatto A Mano" by Fendi

Since the 24th of March, the world of "FATTO A MANO" by Fendi showcased a live performance, at The Dubai Mall, of the artist Meera Huraiz working on her piece of art that was an inspiration from the ancestral Emirati traditional fabric (burka, embroidery and tribal pattern). From the heritage she deconstructs and creates sculptural pieces integrated with modern vision.

Meera Huraiz is a graduate from Zayed University in Dubai with a BA in Visual Arts. She has been selected among 100 emerging Asian artist. She believes culture is progressive and the present is a continuous conversation with the past.


With every emerging artist that is collaborating with Fendi, there is a professional atelier that helps them finish their art piece as will as creates fatto a mano (made by hand) handbags. Cyril (Giuseppe), the atelier, was born in Compiegne 60 km far from Paris, on June 29th 1978. He attended the prestigious Ecole CFT Gregoire in  Paris from 1994 to 1998, where he learnt the basis of model maker art. Since 1998 he has always been working in leather goods ateliers. In 2000 he left Italy to join Celine, on of the luxury brands in LVMH group. Finally in 2007 Cyril joined Fendi in Florence increasing his expertise in Selleria art. Cyril is one of the best artisan working in Fendi Bottega Artigiana.
