Maison Rabih Kayrouz

    Gemmayzeh, Beirut district

    Born in 1973 in Lebanon, Rabih Kayrouz arrived in France at the age of 16 to attend the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne school. He returned to Lebanon in 1995 and founded his fashion house two years later. In 2008, Paris and its know-how made him want to come back and create his brand of ready-to-wear made in France: Maison Rabih Kayrouz. The designer chose the pomegranate as his emblem, a sensual and generous fruit. He then set up his store at 38, boulevard Raspail, in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, in what was the Petit Théâtre de Babylone where the premiere of Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett took place. The Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne invited Maison Rabih Kayrouz to its official calendar from its first collection in 2009. Presenting four collections a year, Rabih Kayrouz plays with the codes of couture that he applies to his ready-to-wear. For the winter 2012-2013 season, he designed a capsule collection for La Redoute and featured his muse, Constance, in a video by Jean-Baptiste Mondino.
