CV: A successful architect and interior designer, Ghada also owns and manages the Vindemia antiques gallery, and shines a spotlight on the region’s emerging artistic talent through Fann À Porter, the contemporary art gallery she founded in Dubai in 2009.
Where it began: “Antiques and art were always a passion and a hobby – I’ve collected ever since I can remember; my great grandmother’s silver seal, her sewing machine, her sugar caddy…
“I lived in a big family in Jordan, so I was surrounded by tradition and culture in a country that is practically an open museum from north to south.”
Big moment: “The charity art auction Artists for the Kids of Syria that Fann À Porter organized. The event was beautiful… we sold 37 paintings and raised Dhs487,000 that went through the Emirati Red Crescent to Syrian children in refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon.”
