Award-winning Middle Eastern fashion designer Amal Sarieddine will return to Couture Fashion Week in New York City with a much-anticipated fashion show to be held at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, September 10, 2010 in the legendary Grand Ballroom at the world-famous Waldorf-Astoria hotel.
Amal Sarieddine is a young Lebanese fashion designer who is following in the footsteps of her mother, acclaimed designer Nawal Sarieddine, who established her own prominent design house some forty years ago. After earning her degree in fashion and interior design from the Lebanese American University, Amal launched her own collection in Beirut in 2004, a city synonymous with luxury couture style and home to such fashion icons as Elie Saab, Georges Chakra and Georges Hobeika. Amal’s designs were immediately applauded and sought out by the cream of Middle Eastern society including many celebrities and the royal families of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. Her clientele also includes prominent socialites and celebrities from Europe and the United States.
A gifted designer known for her lavish and opulent evening and bridal gowns, Amal Sarieddine has presented her collections in the Middle East, Paris and Hollywood. Her debut at Couture Fashion Week New York in 2009 with a stunning collection entitled “Eve”, was warmly received. Her designs have been featured in such prominent fashion publications as Collezioni Haute Couture, ModaStyle International and Book Moda.
“We are really looking forward to presenting Amal’s latest collection,” says event producer Andres Aquino. “Her last show at Couture Fashion Week was quite impressive and demonstrated her talent and creativity in the tradition of the top couture echelon of the field today.”
