Stemming from the belief that fashion production processes urgently need to change, EMERGENCY ROOM utilises a sustainable and ethical alternative to clothing creation. The Lebanese label was launched by Eric Mathieu Ritter in 2018 in Beirut after a coming-to-senses of both urgent and emergent state of fashion nowadays. EMERGENCY ROOM is a clothing brand with a mind of its own.

Ihab Jiryis

Palestinian designer Ihab Jiryis founded his eponymous fashion label 12 years ago creating exquisite avant-garde designs. The fashion designer recently debuted his couture collection on the o social calendar of the Arab Fashion Week. Noticing that everyone desires their imagination to become reality, Ihab aimed to embody this in his couture collection by visually drawing sketches and designs that collated these two realms. The collection features harmonically contradicting elements such as the exposed and the covered, colours that are completely different and a mixture of plain and embroidered fabrics.
