Amina Agueznay’s academic training in architecture fuelled her passion for the intersection of art and design. Graduating from the Catholic University of America with a Bachelor of Architecture in 1989, she went on to lead several architectural projects in the United States. She then went on to study Jewellery design, an approach that has deeply impacted her artistic process. Agueznay combines architectural and metalsmithing techniques with the ancestral skills of weavers in her native country of Morocco.
Since 1999, Agueznay has been exhibited internationally, in cities such as Rabat, Marrakech, New York, Paris, Algiers, Lille, Rotterdam, Stuttgart and Berlin, and has been shown in international fairs in Zurich, Basel, Vienna, Paris and regularly hosts workshops (Kristiansand, Istanbul, Domaine de Boisbuchet, and Morocco). In 2010, she won the prestigious Mediterranean Fashion Prize.
