Joanna’s jewellery

Sun, 04/28/2013 - 04:00 -- Meryanne

I am never blasé about the incredible creative energy Marrakech attracts and generates.Ever since the iconic figure of Moroccan interiors, the American Bill Willis, came here in the 1960s, hundreds of visitors have come, stayed or returned to be part of the incredible design crucible rooted in this millenary cultural crossroad.  

I found new evidence of this creativity last week when I went to the Four Seasons Resort, where a new gallery is showing the jewellery of Marrakech resident Joanna Bristow. I have known Joanna for over 16 years; we were selling her work in Ryad Tamsna, a gallery I had in the Medina from 1999 to 2004. It is intelligent, tasteful and elegant. Chic design whose elegance is international and whose ethnicity is modern and timeless. It made me feel like reincarnating my gallery at Jnane Tamsna (stay tuned!).

Magnet for creative spirits

Stefani Greenberg and Desirée Gruber, the founders of Theodora and Callum, the very cool fashion company, were recently visiting Marrakech on what they called  “a voyage of inspiration.” I was honoured to be asked by their public relations company to organise a dinner where they could meet creative locals.  From the fields of architecture, fashion, furniture, interiors and jewellery, I assembled a dozen Marrakech-based designers to meet with these brilliant and achieved New Yorkers.

Meissen in Marrakech

Mon, 02/18/2013 - 04:15 -- Meryanne

Two years ago, Dr. Christian Kurtzke, CEO of the world famous china brand Meissen, asked me to design a collection. The request surprised me, as I had never designed tableware before.  Prior to answering, I went to the beautiful Dresden Museum in Saxony to understand if there could be a link between Marrakech and Meissen.
