Ahmed Amer is a Beirut-based fashion designer and illustrator. After studying interior architecture at the Lebanese University, Ahmed joined Creative Space Beirut in 2014, a not-for-profit school for fashion design, where he presented his thesis collection at a live fashion show in downtown Beirut three years later. During his time at the school, he was selected to participate in the Middle East edition of Project Runway where he gained exposure to the world of reality competition. He is also one of the OpenMyMed 2020-21 laureates of Maison Mode Mediterranée. Ahmed is the creative director and designer of the namesake brand Ahmed Amer, comprised of gender-fluid, ready-to wear pieces incorporating minimal and organic illustrations. Deeply rooted in emotional behaviour, his illustrations are often created through quick improvisation and a wandering imagination. He has collaborated with various boutiques on exclusive collections. In addition to teaching fashion illustration at Creative Space Beirut and Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts, Ahmed gives evening workshops to the public and engages in various creative collaborations with members of the local art and design community, such as live sketching performances, home products and fashion films.
