The creator of a growing fashion empire, Fouad Sarkis designs with this concept in mind: “We never dress to impress, we dress to create. We do not want women to step inside our dresses and find themselves inside; we want them to find a new self inside. We dare them to be different, because we believe in them.”
By the time he was twelve, Sarkis was already designing for various Lebanese fashion houses; at sixteen, he launched his first collection, dressing many local celebrities and acting as a judge in the official “Miss Lebanon” pageant! Word of Sarkis’ unique, imaginative, and inspiring creations quickly flew across the Middle East.
His own first ready-to-wear collection was launched in 2001 and sparked a massive worldwide following.
Today, Fouad Sarkis Couture is an international brand of high-end gowns, catering to the fashion-forward, daring, and sophisticated woman. FEMME ROUGE proudly features him in the March ’15 issue. Enjoy his gorgeous designs as you scroll through our exclusive images.
