Lebanon is not only hailed for its stunning beaches, magnificent mountains, and hospitality but it’s also known for the strong sense of aesthetics and fashion of its people.

That has brought it to earn a prominent place in the fashion industry worldwide thanks to its outstanding fashion designers.

Many of them continue to dazzle the world with their talent, creativity, refined style, and exceptional couture.

In addition to that, many major European fashion houses presented their fashion collections in Beirut, which was for decades the center of attention in the Middle East for being the cosmopolitan and fashionable city in the region.

Trendy fashion, though, was never just confined to the catwalks and the celebrities in Lebanon. It was and still is relevant everywhere as the Lebanese have always had an acute sense of fashion.
