The industry has continually served as an open forum that prides itself in breeding diversity,  propelling visionary thinking and fostering creative forces who seek to push the limits and bounds beyond the norms.

While Johanna Abitbol of her line, Johaab is at the forefront of designing minimalist pieces that always make a sartorial statement, including her ‘90s inspired chokers that can be worn for any and every occasion.
