RUNWAY: Charlotte Licha S/S 2014 Haute Couture

Beautiful & stylish collection from Lebanese fashion designer Charlotte Licha for S/S 2014 Haute Couture.
More about the designer:
Charlotte Licha, born and raised in Beirut, in a family that helped her to cultivate an artistic taste from childhood. Since she was 12, she started sketching her first dresses; ” Since that time my small world started to be created”; she says. At the age of 19 and after gaining a high diploma in fashion design, pattern-making and fashion marketing; the designer went to study photography which made of her a designer hungry for fashion and gifted with an eye for beauty; which leads her more to the fashion world.
Being fashion consultant for years, for photo sessions and chief designer, creating and designing couture and ready to wear collections for many Lebanese and international fashion houses, enriched her career and experience. In 2009, after several back and forth in Europe including France and Spain, she moved back to Lebanon to start a new chapter in her professional life. Her career as a woman in the business began and with the support of her husband they established the “Global Fashion Group”, a company that produces luxurious evening dresses and sells for more than 30 Boutiques all over the world.
In 2011, Charlotte begins her steps towards the city center of fashion and design. She exhibits her collection in January at the show ready-to-wear in Paris. Although with a positive approach still her ambitions and aspirations were insufficient for the designer. She began her steps towards the fashion where she could best express her personal taste and vision; the Woman in her outer and inner beauty and personality: "Sometimes two tissues connect me to a person or a scene." With passion and precision, the designer creates her dresses by searching a perfect harmony between her vision and the personality of her client. She enjoys with her fabrics and sewing materials; which traces her steps towards an original knowledge and a perfection for the fashion; the sophisticated dresses, the elegant curves, the crafted embroideries translate in majestic dresses which every women dream about.
In 2013, Charlotte decided to go to the heart of the haute couture world to dedicate herself to her dream in fashion design. She is willing to show her first couture collection in Paris during the haute couture fashion week in January 2014.
