MFA in Design Alumna Wins Cairo Design Award

Congratulations to MFA in Design alumna Mona Makhlouf who won gold in the Jewelry Design category at the Cairo Design Award!

The Cairo Design Award (CDA) is the first designer platform in Egypt for award-winning design creativity and innovation in Egypt and in the Middle East, bringing together outstanding designers and celebrating the industry’s achievements.

"This award, in particular, is very dear to me," Mona said, "not only because it's my first design award but also because those jewelry pieces are of the voice of my late mother whom I lost early this year. 

"I am grateful to VCUarts Qatar for allowing me to explore, experiment and give me the opportunity to realize those design outcomes." 

Mona's award-winning design was titled, "I Carry Your Voice".
