In­sider tips from the ho­tel concierges

Rox­anne says, “We have some ex­tremely tal­ented Le­banese de­sign­ers so I of­ten en­cour­age my fash­ion-savvy guests to visit some of their bou­tiques and ate­liers.”

Elie Saab (Elie Saab bldg., Beirut Cen­tral District, 01 981982) “Saab’s cre­ativ­ity has placed Le­banon on the in­ter­na­tional fash­ion map. Spe­cial­iz­ing in bridal wear and haute cou­ture, his de­signs are ele­gant and stylish.” Cyn­thia Raf­foul (Gouraud St., Gem­mayze, 01 443491) “Raf­foul’s ‘Sur-mesure’ col­lec­tion tai­lors unique pieces of jew­elry re­veal­ing each client’s story.”

L’ate­lier Ri­fifi (Rue Achrafieh, 01 219982) “As the only haute-cou­ture de­signer for kids cloth­ing in Le­banon, Rafifi cre­ates beau­ti­fully tai­lored oc­ca­sion wear.”

Boudi Dib (Rah­bani St., An­telias, 03 921976) “Dib spe­cial­izes in made-to-mea­sure suits and shirts for men, play­ing with light­weight fab­rics to cre­ate ex­quis­ite cuts.” Sarah’s Bag (Rue Du Liban, Tabaris, 01 575585) “Flaunt­ing funky de­signs to re­flect Le­banon and its cul­ture, Sarah’s Bag is a great place to pur­chase an eye-catch­ing sou­venir with a twist.”
