Why? Well dear reader, quite simply put, in my humble opinion, it’s the jewel in the crown that is the Levant. Its sun-kissed Mediterranean Sea coastline is breathtaking to the Lebanese and foreigners alike. But one thing many people may not realise, Lebanon’s gift to the world is couture craftsmanship. Driving through Beirut you see dress shop after dress shop, but not all dresses are made equally of course. With several trained couture masters to choose from you can’t go wrong. Couturiers Georges Chakra, Georges Hobeika, and Elie Saab are among the stars that have shone brightly this week.
