Designer Stories: Maryam Razavi
Luv North’s second Designer Story is about Maryam Razavi, Finnish stylist, model, author, and tv-hostess, who is known for her kindness and work ethics. Razavi’s first-ever jewelry design collaboration was launched in fall 2019, and the jewelry has already be seen in several Finnish magazines.
Razavi has Finnish-Iranian roots, which inspired her to look deeper into those fond memories from her childhood. “There’s so much beauty and inspiration everywhere. That’s why I always keep my eyes, ears, and heart open. The Universe In You Collection is inspired by my most personal memories of my family and Iranian roots. Being able to go back to my childhood through the jewelry I’ve designed instantly warms up my heart and brings a smile to my face”, explains Razavi.
The Universe In You collection is inspired by her grandmother’s sunburst mirror, which gave its shape to the collections’ first two pieces, The Sun necklaces. The story behind the name of the collection is simple: we have the whole universe within us. The universe reflects the idea that every one of us is enough just the way we are and everything is connected. Although the message of the collection has a personal meaning to Razavi, she highlights that anyone can relate to the values of family, roots, loyalty, sustainability, and the fact that everything is connected. Razavi sums up that “only by being kind to each other and the earth we will accomplish great things”.
