Lebanese Couturier Rabih Kayrouz Takes Home French Honor
Rabih Kayrouz has come a long way since fleeing the Lebanese civil war in 1989 at just 16 to study at L’École de La Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne: He's launched couture and ready-to-wear collections in Paris, become a guest member of the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture, created a platform for young designers in his native Lebanon and designed a collection for La Redoute. There's no doubt he's accomplished a lot in his decades-long career--and yet many people, even those who follow fashion, still do not know his name. But if Kayrouz has somehow managed to fly under-the-radar so far, that's not likely to last. This year, he was nominated as a finalist for the ANDAM awards, and, just last week, Kayrouz was decorated as a “Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres” by the French government.
