Bashar Assaf is a Lebanese fashion designer currently based in Beirut. His garments aim to challenge the female body with brave geometry complimented with sensibility to material and craftsmanship.His tendency to accentuate the female form was instilled during Bashar's days living in Jeddah (KSA) where women's garments lack definition of the female form. Bashar studied at Esmod fashion school after returning to Beirut, where he developed his skills and expertise while continuing to pursue personal projects.Soon after completing his studies, Bashar began to work, both as a designer and stylist, for an array of clients in the commercial and art sector ranging from music, film, theatre and television between Lebanon and Saudi Arabia. In December 2012, he was chosen as one of Starch Foundation’s designers, where he produced three collections, two of which were showcased at Fashion Forward in Dubai. Elle Style Awards recently nominated him for ‘Best Upcoming Designer in the Middle East’. His upcoming collection in 2014, the first outside the Starch umbrella, will debut part of his first menswear collection alongside his womenswear.
