Last week Dubai’s Sunset Mall ValleyDez boutique hosted Lebanese themed fashion event “Bahibak Ya Libnan” or “I love You, Lebanon”. It was a celebration of latest collections arrival by three Lebanese brands – Nadine Zeni, CeeCode and Celeste. I was curious to see how Lebanese designers see Dubai women dressed in the coming Autumn Winter season and meet them in person (both designers and Dubai women) for a little chit-chat.
Nadine Zeni is a lawyer and self-taught fashion designer, she loves structured silhouettes, feminine shapes that flatter woman’s figure and vintage feel as an inspiration. Her collection consists of dresses, blazers and kaftans; exclusively stocked at ValleyDez boutique in Dubai.

If the Nadine’s shoes could speak they would say “don’t mess with me, dude!”

Celine Atwi from the Celeste brand is a young graphic designer by education that dived into fashion design with printed T-shirts first. She is also a huge fan of vintage, but her designs are more trendy than vintage inspired, she uses light jersey materials in various colors and patterns.
Celine Atwi, pretty and talented
Celeste collection consists of dresses, blouses, jumpsuits and pants.
Young and sweet Cynthia Pennikian of handbags line CeeCode I already had a chance to meet. She was cute as always and her youthful designs always make me smile.
New collection is equally colorful as her previous work that I was telling you about before.
