For the month of October we welcome Stephanie Borg® as the Artist in Residence at The Phoenicia Malta. During this month you will find a series of artworks from the Malta Inspired Collection together with the Nwar Homeware and Tableware Collection displayed at the Palm Court Lounge.
The exhibition was officially launched on Friday 1st of October with a few privileged guests and partners of the Stephanie Borg® brand. The artist explained the inspiration and the hard work behind the Nwar Blue Blossom concept and its collection. Some ambitions for the future of this prestigious collection were also spilled.
“NWAR is the result of what has inspired me over these past 13 years since I began my Malta-inspired creative journey. It is a personal ode to the patterns and designs created by our forefathers who painstakingly executed their craft to perfection. My objective is to celebrate these crafts though contemporary design and application, thus allowing them to blossom into something new.”
A striking addition to the NWAR tablescape is the NWAR-themed stationery design by Stephanie Borg®. Compliment your tablescape with Place Cards, Menu Cards, favour boxes and Event Invitations for a coordinated set up that will impress your guests. The NWAR Blue Blossom Collection is also available for rent for weddings, private parties and corporate events.
