Sandra Mansour on Gigi Hadid: "I am elated as a Lebanese designer to see my designs in the international scene"
The designer spoke exclusively with Buro 24/7 Middle East
Gigi Hadid is a street style guru, perfectly mixing luxury and laidback streetwear to create screenshot-worthy looks on the reg. So imagine our delight upon discovering that one of the model's most recent outfits was by none other than Lebanese designer Sandra Mansour.
Gigi was spotted wearing Sandra's Themisto Silk Pyjama from her AW '17/18 collection, titled Doux Rêves. The collection was inspired "by the manipulation of art and fabric" and was designed to help wearer's express their own individuality through the pieces.
Speaking exclusively to Buro 24/7 Middle East, Sandra said, "I love how Gigi wore the silk pyjama. It was sensual, chic and cool, especially with the trainers. Gigi embodies the Sandra Mansour woman in every aspect, she is strong and beautiful and has a huge sense of individuality – which is what I try to have while creating my pieces. I am elated as a Lebanese designer to see my designs in the international scene."
Sandra will represent the Middle East in the upcoming Buro 24/7 Middle East x Farfetch Initiative in Paris this March. Now, read what the designer had to say about being dedicated to her designs.
