Mona Sultan – A Designer with Conscience

Syrian born, Mona Sultan is a Vancouver-based fashion accessory designer. For the work we’re featuring here, she has collaborated with textile artist Portia Boehm to create fabulously voluptuous and colourful necklaces. They are available at Holt Renfrew’s H Project and 100% of the net profits from sales will go to the Karam Foundation’s “Innovative Education” and “Learn Not Earn” initiatives, helping to bring the 2.8 million Syrian children out of labour and back to school.

 Sultan uses Sanjo Silk’s 10-005 for the sumptuous tassles on these statement pieces. They also feature fabric off-cuts from previous styles of her signature scarf line as a way to re-purpose samples. They were inspired by Sultan’s years of travel in the Mediterranean region.
