Born and raised in Beirut – Lebanon, Céline Haddad is a French Lebanese Womenswear Designer. Starting the age of eighteen, the designer spent her summers in London and Paris exploring the various fields of the Fashion industry including journalism, PR and creative direction which she learned at Condé Nast College in partnership with British Vogue. In 2017, she graduated from the American University of Beirut, majoring in Business Administration and decided to move to New York to complete a degree in Fashion Design at Parsons School of Design.
Shortly after graduating, the emerging designer assisted Richard Quinn at the 2019 Met Gala in dressing super model and Victoria Secret Angel, Lily Aldridge then went on launching her own luxury womenswear eponymous label that promises to offer urban women of any age daring, dynamic and distinct garments and accessories that will make them feel edgy, confident and comfortable in their skin and that they can wear for various occasions rather than just one.
The young fashion designer draws her primary inspiration from the exploration of societal, generational and personal controversies that often arise in today’s civilization and particularly enjoys challenging traditions, revisiting wardrobe classics and creating experimental versions of them by playing around with the elements that initially make an item timeless.
In a recent interview Céline said: “I use design as a means of self-expression and change. By making use of it, designers can serve great causes and raise awareness on several topics. I strongly believe that there’s more to garments and accessories than pure aesthetics: the way what you wear makes you feel and the message it conveys are what interest me the most”.
