Paris Fashion Week Features 7 Lebanese Designers


The fashion world can be very intensive and competitive. If you want to model for a brand, you might compete with many other people. However, there are companies and brands that want to work with models that are outside the fashion world’s norm. These unique and exciting models might include older women models or people from different backgrounds and body types. Brands who break away from an example of a model that you usually see can find success since their product and advertising are eye-catching.

If you want to model for different brands and companies, make sure you have a model profile website that shows your experience and best previous work. Show brands why you are a good fit for them and that you can work professionally. All model profile information might be taken into consideration by potential clients. So if you are exciting and bring something new to the field, make sure that you emphasize that. While you might not be a good fit for everyone, you might find the clients that would be a perfect fit.

Goerges Hobeika, Abed Mahfouz, and Tony Ward

Lebanese designers are well represented in this year’s Paris Fashion Week haute couture showcase as seven Lebanese designers present their collections to the Parisian crowds.

The Daily Star (Lebanon) reports that three Lebanese designers have already showcased their clothing for the Autumn-Winter 2015-2016 season with four more scheduled. Beginning last Sunday and lasting through Friday, the fashion show features some of the trendiest designs in fashion from around the world.

On Monday, July 6, the three Lebanese designers, Goerges Hobeika, Abed Mahfouz, and Tony Ward, displayed their designs on the runway. Hobeika presented his collection at the Salle Orbe New York in the Palais de Tokyo; Mahfouz at the Saint James Albany’s Salon Marie Antoinette; and Ward at L’Oratoire de Louvre.

The four other Lebanese designers will have their presentations later in the week. Georges Chakra will have his at the Palais de Tokyo and Rami Kadi will have his at the Hotel Plaza Athenee.

Elie Saab, meanwhile, will showcase her wares at the Pavillon Cambon Capucines and Zuhair Murad at the Orbe New York.

Kadi has partnered with Dutch designer Negin Mirsalehi for this year’s showcase. Among his designs is said to be a black gown adorned with black and white fringes brimming in modernity and avant-garde mystique.

Saab, one of the more prominent designers in the fashion show, is known for his feminine designs which are infused with inspiration from his native Beirut. Saab has two boutiques in Paris, one of which just opened last week in Paris’s famous Golden Triangle district.

Murad, another Beirut-based designer, is known for evoking nature in his design. Last season, his collection was heavily inspired by water: waterfall-like gowns with bright embroideries, swimsuit bodices, and even mermaid overlays.

Overall, the designers (from Lebanon and elsewhere) will display items that represent the latest in haute couture fashion for the upcoming fall and winter seasons.

Paris Fashion Week is one of the more prominent tourist attractions this city has to offer. In 2013, more than 47 million tourists visited Paris and the surrounding region such as Versailles.
