Fashion Forward Season 1 Coverage: Starch Foundation

Under the watchful eye of Rabih Kayrouz, this youthful, vibrant collaborative is currently turning out colorful and edgy pieces from some the region’s most promising emerging designers. Starch Foundation’s dedication to exposing and supporting new designers seemed to have paid off as Hussein Bazaza, Bashar Assaf, and Celine Der Torossian, the designer behind fashion label Azade, sent their designs down the runway.

A surfeit of appealing looks made it impossible to pick a favorite. There were slashed body-conscious dresses, sheath-like thigh-high-slit sleeveless gowns, and adorable floral-printed toppers with wide-leg linen trousers. The aesthetic rotated around modern fashions, even though the designers each took a varied approach. Keep an eye on Starch Foundation as it helps promote and market some of Lebanon’s best young designers.
