About the designer

After graduating from Parsons School of Design in New York, Turkish designer Serena Uziyel lived in various cities from Milan to Alicante. Working as a womenswear designer for Zara in Spain, the brothers Enis and Amir Karavil asked Serena to come back to Istanbul, Turkey to design a luxury accessories line for their lifestyle boutique Sanayi 313. Inspired by the traditional weaving techniques from the Ottoman Empire, Serena created a covetable line of handcrafted shoes and bags each with their own sense of flamboyance. The adorned and embroidered babouches-inspired mules will save you a trip scouring in the Arab Souks.
