Fashion philanthropist Nadine Mezher (inset) brings a socially aware stance to the fashion industry with her accessories brand nawá. Born out of a mothers wish for her son to grow up in a better world, the label produces fashion that is inspired by the culture and spirit of different communities. Crafted by artisans in Lebanon, Syria, Palestine and Jordan and finished in materials from Italy, all net profits go back into these communities to aid development and create a sustainable future.

“The name nawá comes from the Arabic word for seed and symbolizes the spirit of continuous and abundant giving that starts with a simple act. Besides fashion, my greatest passion right now is for social commitment. We can all create magic around and change the world. You just have to start somewhere” says Nadine.

Her Hanami Messenger Bag and Havana Bag have been a huge success in United Designers, featuring on Grazia’s Fashion Charts and a number of other blogs and magazines. Available in a number of delicious colours that work well with any outfit, nawá’s collection has a true retro feel.

The colours range from a hot fuchsia pink contrasted with black crochet and white with aqua blue, to a vintage brown with yellow. There is one to suit any outfit or any sense of style. We adore them and know that you will too.
