Dana Mortada   |   24-04-2018

Lebanese-born, a two-time prize best designer winner at ESMOD; Nathalie Karam, is known for her exclusive work with top international designers for over 15 years where she gained the valuable knowledge and experience that helped her launch her own eponymous brand.



Her inspiration is triggered from today’s eccentric woman, and her mission is to offer them with her creative pieces altered with new dimensional cuts; and designs that are heavily infused with a bold twist of edginess and sensuality.

Also influenced by the late ’70s generation and the androgynous ‘8os, Karam’s f
irst ready-to-wear collection titled ‘Love Hangover’, paid homage to her muses from the golden era like Lauren Hutton, Bianca Jagger and Diana Ross.


At Nathalie Karam you will see lots of reinterpreted classical menswear transformed into delicate cinched dresses, bustier-corset tops, slit pants, draping and playful ruffles; one of her signatures that she calls the ‘New Androgynous’ look.


Details and comfort are the two main pillars of the Nathalie Karam label. Her refined techniques, sophisticated cuts and built-in corsets, are all customised for the contemporary women of today’s time. 


The young designer is available at her showroom by appointment, where she also offers custom-made and bridal designs.
