One of the most acclaimed Lebanese designers is Emma Boutros, owner and designer of Poise design a shoes brand. She has her own particular taste and dares into mixing vibrant colors and even use embroidery and badges for the shoes she makes. My all-time favorite is her above-the knee lace peep-toed heels—very feminine, not a tiny bit tacky.
She launched her Spring Summer collection with what I loved to call “a sea of shoes” at The “charming” Hangout garden in Gemmayzeh. The fashion was there, from bloggers to stylists, Instagrammers and influencers as well as media figures such as Hilda Khalife.
