- Instagram/@elisasednaoui The Italy-born model and philanthropist spent the first six years of her childhood in Zamalek, Cairo, and would visit at least three-times year, she says.
- Though she is based in Los Angeles, the 33-year-old is very much connected to her Egyptian roots.
- Last year, Sednaoui unveiled her debut collection of leather carryalls, pouches and backpacks and decided to pay sartorial homage to her roots by decorating each bag with crocodiles and an interpretation of the Abyssinian cat — a representation of the Ancient Egyptian sun deity, Ra.
