Nada Talhame is the creative force and soul behind her self-named design label. A former architect, Nada became intrigued with fashion design and went on to study at the Ecole Supérieure des Arts et Techniques de la Mode in Paris, after which she perfected her skills working with some of the world’s most eminent fashion houses including Christian Dior, Charles Jourdan, Elie Saab and Chanel. In 2004, Nada returned to her hometown of Beirut and pursued her dream of launching her own couture line.
Nada also explored other facets of her creativity by teaching at the ESMOD fashion design institute in Beirut. Her enthusiasm and classes in design methods inspired many students to uniquely express their own creativity. Nada’s career in teaching created a platform to become further acquainted with the Lebanese fashion scene and leave a mark with her distinct style and ethos. She also extended her scope in the industry by acting as a style and fashion consultant. Her reputation as a haute couture designer is admired within the film, advertising and retail domains.
In 2007, Nada opened her first retail venue; a loft-like showroom in the posh Tabaris neighborhood, in which she showcases her entire collection within an intimate atmosphere. Nada’s philosophy is simple; it is to balance exceptional couture design, service and quality. She provides a truly personal and attentive service to each client. She takes the time to listen to the needs of her clientele and advises them on fabrics, colors, cuts and styles.
