MY CHILDHOOD INFLUENCE
I have loved fashion for as long as I remember and have always been influenced by my family, who loved to express their sense of style. I remember my Grandmother told me stories of how they used to grow silk and then eventually sell it together with the most delicate fabrics in my grandfather's fabric shop in downtown Beirut.
My father was always impeccably dressed. He used to take me with him to show me the different types of fabrics before choosing one for his personally tailored suits. He always wore various hats, especially a Stetson and still carries with him until now a bag to go around town. My sense of style was born then.
My mother radiated timeless beauty, elegance, and finesse in everything she wore. Her love for timeless handbags and beautifully crafted shoes cannot go unnoticed.
On the other hand, my sister had it all – the understated elegance and beauty with a touch of colour and edge to her style. She influenced my passion for bags, colourful tones and the contrast detail later evident in my work. She is my greatest advocate. Our parents always told us, "Well-crafted pieces speak for themselves"
