Saiid Kobeisy: A visionary artist, a dreamer, and a passionate person
Before I started blogging my fashion knowledge was based mainly on the popular brands. Such as Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Dior, and Versace. Not counting Elie Saab, I don’t think I knew of many designers from the Middle East. As I continue on my virtual fashion journey around the world, I’ve been surprised at how many amazing designers come from Lebanon. Georges Chakra, Reem Acra, and Georges Hobeika are just a few of the designers that come from this most fashion-conscious country.
Another talented designer from Lebanon is Saiid Kobeisy. Known for his visionary style, Kobeisy is a talented haute couture designer with a passion for fashion. Foreign cultures and civilizations in addition to his Lebanese culture have played a very important role for having a constant inspiration. His brand describes him, and his character is translated through every single detail and effort that he puts into his work.
Kobeisy first started in 2002 when he opened his very first Atelier in Beirut, Lebanon and launched his line “DELUCHY” by saiid kobeisy. In 2005 he launched his gold line “SAIID KOBEISY” couture and in 2010 relocated his showroom to the heart of Beirut, downtown. Today, the designer delivers his vision to the world in boutiques in Dubai, Kuwait, Libya, Michigan and Los Angeles.
The new Bridal 2017 collection from Kobeisy consists of twenty glamorous wedding dresses that are are a combination of both simplicity and luxury.
Here are some of my favourite picks from the collection.
