Designer Lilian Afshar is one to watch the coming season as she launches her capsule collection of Perspex box clutches under the name L’AFSHAR. Now living in Dubai, but ancestrally from Iran and also having lived across the world including London, Vancouver and Marbella, Lilian’s travels and experiences are evident within her distinctive designs.

The intricate and striking logo of a scarab beetle mixed with a dragonfly encapsulates her journey of east meets west. The scarab beetle is a common bug of the East whilst the Dragonfly is a symbol of change, adaptability, joy and strength. The clutches themselves are of Perspex material, which are cleverly crafted in Dubai.
