THEY TALK ABOUT US
WE’RE NELLY & CELIA, TRUE FRIENDS
I (Nelly) love fantasize. My bff Célia is a real maker. We meet in Paris while studying Art & Design. Begin our journey, sharing the same vision of life: “Aiiii, porque llorar? Si, la vida es un carnaval.”
... FROM PARIS TO NEW-YORK
Célia falls in love and moves to NY. She design for P Diddy’s alcool brand Cîroc and luxury house Cartier. I knock at the door of my favorite artist, Matthew Barney and work as the costume designer on his opera film, River of Fundament.
WE ARE MAKERS WITH DREAMS
I design haute joaillerie for Chanel, Boucheron and Christofle in Paris. Célia becomes a product designer and experiences set design for Le Louvre Abou Dhabi and Galerie Vivienne.
WE BELIEVE IN MAGIC
Holy Faya comes from our common dream, from the design of meaningful jewelry to the creation of hip hop musicals. We want a mix between story telling and hacking culture, tradition and technology, street culture and fantasy.
