However, when it comes to shoe design in Lebanon, only a few names come forward, and one of those most famous among these few that we’ve been recently hearing about is Andrea Wazen.
Andrea Wazen is a passionate Lebanese shoe designer who started designing at a young age. Soon enough, her designs attracted the attention and went popping up into the limelight.
Recently, her designs have taken Hollywood by storm, and they seem to have become the latest trend-to-wear among the elite.
Let’s take a look at the most famous international celebrities who were recently spotted in her pieces:

In that regard, Andrea Wazen shared a post on her Instagram of Jennifer Lopez wearing her boots, captioning it: “I never imagined this day would come!! I remember dancing with my sisters to all her songs growing up..(still do now)! And now she’s dancing on stage in MY BOOTS!!! Feeling so blessed.”
