Gemy’s story started in the eyes of an inquisitive young girl, whose curiosity and passion would be nurtured to blossom into exceptional talent.
Her father owned a fabric factory and from an early age, she would regularly visit this fascinating world of colors and materials, within which she found not only great inspiration but also the opportunity to create great beauty.
It was only natural that she should have inherited his fondness for textiles and realising her vocation was to be fashion, she vowed to pave her own way in that world sprinkling it with her unique mark of freshness and magic.
Her innate artistic talent was further developed through relentless devotion to her work and a determination to challenge the norms of current fashion. By 1996 Gemy Maalouf had opened her premier atelier in Beirut, and became the first designer to launch the “Couture a Porter” concept in Lebanon.
Somewhat of a pioneer in the field, her desire to present haute couture in an unprecedented manner meant defying the classic in every aspect of her work. Her unique approach was soon noticed and in no time she had started to carve a name for herself as the go-to for intricate high-end formal wear for the young, sexy and modern woman.
