AMANDA NAVAI, the Dubai based brand made its debut in Harper’s Bazaar Arabia in May 2010 when it was dubbed “The Universe of Python”. Two weeks later AMANDA NAVAI was the first homegrown accessories brand to launch Bloomingdale’s Dubai Mall. The collection took the market by storm and sold out within a week’s time.
Today, six years later, the brand is also available at the most luxurious stores in the region such as Saks Fifth Avenue Bahrain, Tryano Abu Dhabi and Harvey Nichols Dubai. Driven by the mission to be apart of a regional movement, AMANDA NAVAI stands to inspire homegrown talents to have the mentality and commitment to reach their vision.
Always breaking barriers, the brand was the first Dubai based designer to exhibit at Paris Fashion Week in 2011 and the Saatchi Gallery in London in 2013. AMANDA NAVAI was also the first regional designer to have a solo window display at Saks Fifth Avenue and was the only product focus selected for Tryano’s launching advertising campaign amongst international super brands in 2015.
AMANDA NAVAI is a niche brand focusing on distribution solely at high-end department stores. Guaranteeing a sense of uniqueness to customers, the brand only produces 10 bags in the same style and color. Designs may be revamped in another season however there is always an element that has been enhanced allowing limited editions and exclusivity for the owners.
Made with the utmost precision and care, every bag is handmade and transformed under the same roof and hands to ensure quality control. From the leather that is individually inspected and handpicked to avoid blemishes, to the lambskin interior lining of the bags, delicate craftsmanship is visible. All bags are created with semi-precious 22k gold-plated brass metal, juxtaposed against pieces of exotic leather skin and marked with a lion insignia that represents strength, a brand symbol that transcends into every collection.
Targeting multitasking, fashion-forward woman, Amanda Navaian, Founder and Creative Director of AMANDA NAVAI, designs and dedicates her bags to the independently strong and unique women who inspire her each season.
AMANDA NAVAI’s bold and bright signature skins allow modern women to stand out with statement handbags while remaining practical. The brand maintains the timeless essences of fashion by re-visiting vintage classics and reviving them through colorful and modern styles focused on versatility, structure and boldness.
Derived from the first collection and now a trademark of the brand, The Reversible Clutch is the ultimate day to night bag and the perfect traveling companion. The multipurpose bag has two color options to wear and has become a brand classic for its revolutionary approach that allows a smooth transition from work to happy hour.
Another progressive piece is the The Nayla Bag that contains a secret compartment allowing space for change of shoes. With a double zipper mechanism, the bag is designed in functional way that doesn’t compromise the structure of the bag.
Made with luxurious leathers, AMANDA NAVAI designs to satisfy the question of what women want through clever designs that are both practical and proactive.
