George Azzi and Assaad Osta met at Esmod Beirut in 2004. They formed a close bond and a united artistic vision founded on their shared interest of history, surrealism and the science of fabrics. Their star rose quickly, and upon graduating on top of their class, the duo’s work caught the eye of Elie Saab who offered them an internship within his design studio. At the end of their internship, they were immediately hired as assistant designers working directly alongside the designer.
It was just a few years later, in 2010, that the ambitious designers launched their eponymous Haute Couture atelier. Today, AZZI & OSTA encompasses Haute Couture, bridal and ready-to-wear, and has garnered a reputation as a notable luxury brand adored by confident, sophisticated women around the world. AZZI & OSTA defines a new era of elegance built upon a respect for the techniques, principles and codes of Haute Couture. Fashioned through a unique sensibility, a highly orchestrated yet seemingly effortless signature style is captured through a singular vision, a unique creative energy that lies at the intersection between controlled technical mastery and unrestrained artistic flair.
