Her name is Rebecca Zaatar, a Lebanese born and raised in Beirut, and a graduate of the ESMOD in Beirut.
She worked closely with Elie Saab for 7 years in his creative department before taking off on her own in 2016, launching her own brand THYM to celebrate the woman of today in all her feminine strength and versatility.
In 2019, she was part of a Maybelline campaign to raise funds for education in Lebanon, supporting the NGO Teach For Lebanon that aims to eliminate educational inequality while fostering youth leadership.
Since her childhood, Rebecca was fascinated with painting, fashion, and art. These multiple sources of creative inspiration, converging with her education and work with Elie Saab, are yielding exquisite designs fit for today’s spirited and independent women.
As stated on her brand’s website, “her pieces don’t fit in a box.”
For Rebecca, “the woman of today does it all, and can be anything she wants, even if those things are seemingly opposite” and so her fashion designs aim to reflect that characteristic, including with her jewelry collection.
