- Title:Designers | Azzi & Osta
How you got started:
The journey began when we both joined Esmod Beirut in 2004 where we graduated top of our class and gained the jury prize. We then started a two-week internship at Elie Saab's design studio, at the end of which we were hired as assistant designers, giving us the opportunity to learn at the hands of the master himself. It was during this time that our friendship blossomed and 18 months later we decided to take a leap of faith and launch our couture house together.
We've been recently dressing a lot of A-list international celebrities. This is something we are extremely proud of as it put our name on the international fashion map. So far, we have dressed the likes of Beyoncé, Cardi B, Kendall Jenner and Eva Longoria. We have also had the honor to dress her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan, whom we consider one of the most influential figures of our time.
Something people don't know about you:
We are advocates of animal rights. This is why you will never see animal fur or leather in our collections. Another fact that few people know is that we are both extremely passionate about history!
