His couture bridal and evening creations are favored by an exclusive

naturally elegant, empowered, warm and sexy.
Mr. Fares has done successful fashion shows in Paris, including the
Hydra Pret-a-Porter event, and in Lebanon as well as other Middle

2007, he did a series of fashion shows in the USA in Miami, Houston and
Washington D.C. before enthusiastic audiences of dignitaries and VIPs.
Mr. Fares has designed evening gowns for a number of top beauty
contestants including Miss Lebanon 2004 and Miss World Supermodel 2002,
as well as for singer Shada Hassoun, winner of the 2007 Star Academy
final (the American Idol of the Arab world) who has become a symbol of
unity and goodwill in war-torn Iraq.
"Jean Fares's creations are of the highest caliber, like so many other
