Style Icon Spotlight: Celebrating Lebanese Designers
When planning our Style Icons for this month, we wanted to focus on international icons. Last week we gave you Queen Rania of Jordan, a monarch for the modern age whose style and grace is an inspiration to us. Next week, we have another international icon for you who has made a quite a name for herself in the entertainment industry. It was in this vein, of thinking of international icons that we got the idea for Style Icon Spotlight, a series of special features here at Icons for Le Icon.
For those of you familiar with our fabulous designer Dareen, you know that one thing she is immensely proud of is her Lebanese heritage. In recent years Lebanon has become a hot bed for fashion, home to some of the hottest designers in the world. Four of the biggest names in Lebanese fashion are Zuhair Murad, George Chakra, Elie Saab and Reem Acra. They are also four of the most sought after designers for Hollywood’s biggest nights. In recent months their designs were seen on Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez, Zoe Saldana and Katy Perry just to name a few.
Icons for Le Icon celebrates the women that represent the boldness, class and beauty of our brand. These designers and their work represent the boldness, class and beauty that embody Lebanese design. With Dareen joining this growing pantheon of fabulous designers who are carving Lebanon’s place on the fashion map we want to celebrate them and their work. The starlet who wears it may give the dress a canvas to be displayed, but these designers are the true artists behind their breathtakingly beautiful looks.
