Making a beautiful world, with stories and objects

Jameel Mohammed is an Artist and Designer born and raised in Chicago, IL. He founded KHIRY in 2016 as an undergraduate, studying political science at the University of Pennsylvania after being told that true luxury brands could only emerge from Paris and Milan. KHIRY was established to subvert the conventions of luxury; employing the sector’s emphasis on rarified design, precise craftsmanship, transportative image-making, fine materials, and seductive narrative to make pointed statements about the value of Black life and culture. 

His demi-fine jewelry collection has been carried at Barneys, The Webster, Moda Operandi, and McMullen, and his work has been featured in Vogue, The New York Times, Vanity Fair, The Cut, Teen Vogue, W, Essence, and T Magazine. His pieces are worn and cherished by notable global women including Michelle Obama, Serena Williams, Janelle Monae, Yara Shahidi, Ava Duvernay, and Solange Knowles. His drawings are featured in Black Futures, a collection by Kimberly Drew and Jenna Wortham. He has designed collaborations with Academy Award winning, Coming 2 America, designed for the principal characters in collaboration with costume designer Ruth E. Carter.

Jameel was named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 List in the Art and Style category for 2021, and became a finalist in CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund the same year. He is also the recipient of the Fashion Scholarship Fund Accelerator Grant, and the Harlem’s Fashion Row Icon 360 Award, and was nominated for American Emerging Designer of the Year at the 2021 CFDA Awards.
