Lebanese designers are sought after by royals and celebrities alike, and it is no surprise when any of them make the news. The Lebanese Couture House Azzi & Osta, the brainchild of designers George Azzi and Assaad Osta, made headlines this week when Queen Rania of Jordan made her stunning appearance in one of their designs.
On March 3rd, Queen Rania hosted a banquet in honor of the King and Queen of Norway in Amman. The royal guests were received by King Abdullah II, Queen Rania, and Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II.
Elegant and classy like always, Queen Rania did not deceive expectations. She stood dazzling in her Azzi & Osta evening design: A fancy silk blouse with an elaborated collar and a long mermaid-style skirt of deep royal color adorned with gold embroidery.
Behind this elegant Lebanese Fashion label based in Beirut are two dexterous Lebanese designers, George Azzi and Assaad Osta.
They both graduated at the top of their class to then do their internship with non-other than the internationally celebrated Lebanese fashion master Elie Saab.
Soon after, they got to work directly with Elie Saab and went on later to launch their own couture house Azzi & Osta in 2010.
George Azzi and Assaad Osta, who have already released their Ready-To-Wear Autumn-Winter 2020/2021 collection, are driven by Lebanese classy elegance and incorporate their culture and heritage into their sleek creativity.
In an interview with Forbes, Azzi stated that the Lebanese style is “defined by the immense drive for all things beautiful.”
Osta said: “We’re the festive type of culture that enjoys every second of the day and, because much has happened in the country, we always live in the present.
As for the beautiful queen of Jordan, this is not the first time she goes for Lebanese designs. Just recently, she was seen on different occasions wearing jewelry pieces by the Lebanese Jewelry designer Ralph Masri.
