Saiid Kobeisy began sketching dresses at the age of fifteen, with a dream of transforming those drawings into “eminent artworks.” In 2001 that dream became a reality when the Lebanese designer opened his first atelier in Beirut, following with a collection of nine dresses in 2002.

Kobeisy’s designs combine luxurious fabrics and finishes in sophisticated elegance with more than a hint of sensuality. Intricate embroidery is overlaid on seductive sheer illusion, full, feminine peplums embrace curves, while hems drape down to graceful trains—all in hues ranging from subdued blush tones to vibrant reds. It’s no wonder that some of the top entertainers in Lebanon and Turkey are drawn to his couture collections. With a showroom in Los Angeles, we’re betting it won’t be long before Hollywood stars wanting to make a statement pick up on this trending designer.
