Upon completion of her schooling in Casablanca, Amina Agueznay studied architecture in Washington DC, where she earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree. In parallel, Amina trained as a jewellery designer. She thus navigates with ease between the miniature and the monumental, a feature that often recurs in her work. Her artistic practice leads her to the borders of the diverse yet complementary fields of design, fashion, and traditional weaving methods that she frequently incorporates into her work. Back in Morocco, Amina collaborated with government agencies to support artisans in their search for innovation, and to help them to commercialise their products.
Since 1999, Agueznay has been exhibited internationally, in cities such as Rabat, Marrakech, New York, Paris, Algiers, Lille, Rotterdam, Stuttgart and Berlin, and regularly hosts workshops. In 2010, she won the prestigious Mediterranean Fashion Prize.
