When: Saturday December 2, 12 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Why: Farah Studio will be hosting an intimate shopping experience presented by Joudel Janoska featuring jewelry designer Alan Anderson and his exclusive Holiday Collection in the Byward Market. Guests are welcome to enjoy complimentary refreshments as they try on outfits from Farah’s new collection along with Alan Anderson’s one-of-a-kind statement jewelry.
Background information: Hailing from Iran, a country with a rich artisan and craftsmanship heritage, Farah began to learn dressmaking at an early age. She pursued her passion in Rome, Italy, where she opened her first atelier, selling original designs through some of Rome’s exclusive boutiques. Upon fatefully moving to Ottawa in the 1990s with her family, she found a new home for her passion. All Farah Studio pieces are thoughtfully designed, cut, and sewn in Ottawa using high-quality textiles to create practical and elegant styles.
Alan handcrafts each piece, prong-setting vintage crystals and stones to create one-of-a-kind pieces, all signed with his signature cartouche. His pieces have adorned celebrities and magazine covers around the world. Dame Elizabeth Taylor owned an amethyst cuff which became part of the Christie’s auction of her collection, Katy Perry wore a topaz brooch for L’Uomo Vogue, and Viola Davis, a rose and olivine collar for the UK premiere of The Help. His work, inspired by the glamorous sirens of Hollywood’s golden era, Newport’s gilded age and turn-of-the-century European Royalty, is an art form — timeless, collectible and destined to be handed down through generations.
