Rania Tueni-Gebara

  • Lebanese designers
  • fashion design

Achrafieh, Beirut district

Two hundred steps, a steep Italian mountain and a wedding full of Lebanese women turned Rania Tueni-Gebara into a shoe designer. Fearing the fury of her heel-clad wedding guests upon learning they would have to walk 20 minutes and up more than 200 mountain steps from a chapel to the cliff-side reception, Gebara invested in comfy sandals for all.

Her wedding kick-started her entry into fashion design and the launch of her women's shoe line: Boho Shoes.
