SOULKANI is born from a compelling story of empowerment and self-belief that every woman can achieve her dreams of success. Creative Director Ilham Soulkani’s emotive journey from a young child of 3 years being abandoned through her parents’ divorce, to having her ambitions imprisoned during university, culminated in her making the most important decision of her life: to leave everything she had known behind and start afresh. Forging a self-sufficient life, she worked incredibly hard to begin achieving her goals, and now she hopes this story will inspire others to believe nothing is impossible.
SOULKANI’s collaboration with Italian artisans capitalises on their unique skills in handcrafted, high-quality natural leather for luxurious elegance. Our iconic crown design symbolises the royal sophistication and wealth that we believe every woman should feel every day – we are all queens.
Our launch in 2021 marks the beginning of a new era, with the classic 3RS shoes not only representing the significant moment beginning Ilham’s journey but additionally being a reflection of investing in yourself as you deserve.
Ilham is also the founder of luxury skincare brand ORKANI, believing the combination of elegance in beauty and fashion will help women everywhere to feel confident in themselves.
“Both beauty and fashion complete me; I can’t live with only one of them” – Ilham Soulkani.
