Designing shoes produce a rush of dopamine in my brain, This is why I called this collection HEAL (Dopamine is a neurotransmitter made in the brain. It plays a role in “the reward center”)
Why this bold design:
Shoes make a person confident and attractive, especially high heels designed with great panache. Even the least confident woman on earth can feel empowered when wearing high heels. I chose a combination of unconventional materials to accentuate the audacity, and fearlessness.

In this poster I collected 2 collections of shoes: HEAL 1 and HEAL 2

I come from a progressive family passionate about arts.
During my academic journey, I had the opportunity to gain skills related to computer software and architectural visualization, and I became fascinated by the paradigm of the digital realm.
Since the covid-19 pandemic, I am working to refine my repertoire in Architecture and design, and I collaborated with famous Oscar-nominated movie directors and designers, on interior design projects. such as the rehabilitation and redesign of the president of Algeria’s presidential room.From 2016-2018 I produced research on shell structures at UNL.
