miss lebanon up-close

Saly Greige is Miss Lebanon 2014. From the region of Koura, North Lebanon, Saly studied civil engineering at the University of Balamand. Saly aspires to put her engineering skills at the service of her country, where she has plans for land development and advancement in terms of urbanism. Women’s Rights are also on Miss Lebanon’s mind, as it is a cause that she holds dear to her heart. Was becoming Miss Lebanon a childhood dream for you or is it a recent challenge you wanted to take? I have always been encouraged by my family and friends since my younger age to take the Miss Lebanon challenge, but I just decided to participate to this competition after accomplishing my university studies.

creative space

Beirut and Fashion are becoming an inseparable duet. From internationally renowned Lebanese designers, to an evergrowing sphere of local fashion bloggers ravaging the net, fashion is now an intrinsic part of the creativity in the country. But the story we are highlighting today is way beyond the glamour and glitz of the fashion industry. In 2011, after graduation from Parson’s university in New York, Sarah Hermez was perplexed. She loves to create, she is passionate about fashion… but her heart wants to fight for justice in a society that lacks it on so many levels. So she got an idea… but unlike so many of us who have a zillion ideas per day and do little more than reflect on them on the couch, Sarah fought and brought her idea to life. With her former…

fashion interview hassan idriss

Can someone please harness the prolific energies of local Designer Hassan Idriss? One minute we’re drooling over his superb dresses and gowns, the next exclaiming at his prodigious wax sculptures, and next we are left mesmerized by his oh-so-interesting array of books laying on his library shelf. Keeping up with Hassan’s life is gruelling (we’re just jealous; obviously we love it) In an exclusive interview, he tells Home for Christmas about his passion for the trade, his love for fireworks and explains why fashion design “is a dog” (yes, you’ve read that right, a dog). Keep on perusing because Hass – as I like to affectionately call him – is on a roll, soon to make a great impact. What gets you out of bed in the morning? What keeps you up…
