Publisher's description: Decoration and design as Dora El Chiaty might exclaim: "What else?". It was in Egypt, the country of her birth, that this passion developed and found its full expression, as evidenced by numerous creations showcasing not just a talent, but a genuine gift. Born in Ismaila, to a Greek family, she arrived in France at the age of eleven as a boarder at Sacre-Coeur de Chantilly, then returned to Cairo to study at the Centre Culturel Franšais where she passed her baccalaureate. After a short stay in Spain, she studied journalism, advertising and anthropology at the American University in Cairo, where she got a Bachelor of Arts degree. It was there that she got to know her future husband, Hamed El Chiaty, a defining encounter in more ways than one. Indeed, Hamed would soon become an entrepreneur in tourism and would ask the woman who had become his wife to decorate two of the boats he owned on the Nile. Dora, who had always loved art in all its forms, found her curiosity piqued and successfully completed her first two projects with ease, taste and character. This would mark the start of a genuine fascination for the many different sides of this profession -- decoration and design -- and the starting point for many other commissions which would accompany Hamed's rise through the tourism world, first and foremost in Egypt.
