I.- About Royal Couture
Royal Couture is an emerging high fashion company born to shake up the bridal and party fashion with its creations. Their clothing is characterised by the magic and refinement extracted from dance, opera, painting and the most acclaimed icons of the international Haute Couture. The essence of Romanticism and Art Nouveau distinguish garments that transform their wearers into the protagonists of an enchanted story to be remembered forever.
Using unique fabrics coming from distant places such as India or New York, so exclusive that turn the garments into unrepeatable works of art, Royal Couture makes daydream garments through handcrafted production in Spain. Extremely elegant and exclusive patterns, hand-sown embroideries and exquisite attention to detail are some of the identity signs of the brand.

I.- Who is Jean-Louis Sabaji?
Lebanon has been described by Zeina Karam as Middle East’s Daring Fashion Capital; it has become an important tourist destination due to its European flavor based on French colonial influence and the sharp contrast between women with barely there clothes and others covered from head to toe. Jean-Louis Sabaji success story began here.
Jean-Louis was born in a design environment and raised in his father’s atelier. Following his graduation from the Lebanese American University in 2008, he headed to Milan’s Domus Academy. In 2011 Jean Louis’ allegiance to his father’s studio evolved to the responsibility of carving the new paths ahead.

Have you heard about Alexander McQueen? If you have not been hiding under a rock for a long time, probably you have. Have you ever thought that Alexander McQueen was a lone genius? Then you may be surprised that this is not totally true. In fact, Sarah Burton lived underneath his shadow for 14 years. Today she is is Creative Director for Alexander McQueen Trading Limited. Now let’s start from the beginning.
Sarah Burton was born Sarah Heard in Cheshire in 1974. Her early years elapsed between Withington Girl’s School, Manchester Polytechnic and Central St Martins College of Art and Design in London. During her third year in Central St Martins she was interviewed for a year’s placement at Alexander McQueen at the suggestion of her tutor Simon Ungless, a friend of McQueen’s. She joined the company for a year as an intern in 1996 and rejoined full time upon her graduation the year after.
Sarah Burton was appointed Head of Design – Women’s wear in 2000, designing dresses for personalities such as Michelle Obama, Cate Blanchett, Lady Gaga and Gwyneth Paltrow. Following McQueen’s death in February 2010, and after company owner Gucci confirmed that the brand would continue, Burton was named the new Creative Director of Alexander McQueen Trading Limited in May 2010. She helped shepherd to completion Lee’s last collection for Fall 2010, which was in progress when Lee died, and pulled together the blockbuster retrospective ‘Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty’ at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute with curator Andrew Bolton, which became one of the most-visited exhibitions in the museum’s 142-year history.
