nafsika skourti is a directional upper contemporary brand that embraces both glamour and anti-glamour. collections are built around an eclectic mix of references, research and textile development. we love using our clothes to tell a bigger story, weaving personal narratives with social observations and subtle political commentaries. humour, a 90's approach to sexy, and hints of ironic bad taste is what we live for. we strive to translate our creative impulses into desirable closet friendly pieces, that are cool, culturally relevant, and beautifully crafted.
based out of amman, jordan, our hq (a suburban villa turned luxury dressing room) merges showroom, atelier and installation space. appointments are available for fittings, bespoke consultation and commissions.
