A beautiful memory of Beirut often visits me in a dream.A beautiful memory that never ceased to inspire me – that inspired this collection.When these images overtake me I know for certain that the Beirut of my dreams will forever be alive, magnetic, festive and charming.When I close my eyes and think of Beirut, I know for certain that this dream is mine.Back then, Beirut seemed to be constantly adorned for a party that would never end.Beirut never gave up because the dream was unbreakable.As Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was determined to bring the Beirut dream back to life, construction cranes droned endlessly all around the city.Years of torment were buried behind, a new decade was celebrated.The resurrection of Beirut, as beautiful, as elegant, as mesmerising as ever.Beirut women, once again, radiated, lead by two iconic figures of the new millennium: Nazek Hariri and Mona Hraoui – the respective wives of the [late former] Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and the [late former] President Mona Hraoui.With this collection, I too have wished to celebrate Beirut.
