Jean Fares’ latest collections, “Couture-A-Porter” Summer 2015 & Winter 2015-2016, were showcased during the 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews. His designs are sophisticated, yet sensual, revealing a glimpse of curve while concealing any flaws. “Whether warm or sexy, angelic or gorgeous, I want my woman to feel the core essence of her identity,” says Fares.

Born in Beirut, Lebanon, Fares had a passion for designing from an early age. He graduated from design school in 1988, taking his trademark style and starting his own label in 1992. By the late 90s he was a favorite in the Middle East, and he has since gone global. Known for his asymmetrical lines, sheer cutouts, and form-fitting, glamorous gowns, he is a popular choice with celebrities, including Kerry Washington, Paris Hilton, Nicole Scherzinger, Maria Carey, Martina McBride, Brooke Burke, and Paula Abdul.
