“It’s all in the details”, believes Shewekar, popularly known as Shiwi, the founder and lead designer of Shewekar design studio. After concluding her B.A. in Business Administration from the American University in Cairo, Shewekar pursued her passion for architecture and design. Living in Miami at the time, she decided to study her second B.A., in Interior Design from the Miami International University of Art and Design. Upon returning to Egypt in 2002, with renewed inspiration, she established her own studio to creatively transform what she learned to experiential work. In 2017, she expanded her scope of work to furniture design and launched Shewekar, her signature luxury furniture and exquisite home accessories line. Since Shewekar believes in enjoying a holistic lifestyle, she is also a certified nutritionist, health coach and philanthropist, but her true passion remains to be creating refined and inspiring spaces. She’s also the author of a Middle Eastern cookbook titled “Bel Hana”, which will be out by August 2019.
