About the designer:

Zayan Ghandour was born in Beirut, Lebanon. Her career in fashion started with a limited edition t-shirt line, which gained notoriety quickly amongst editors and buyers alike. In 2004, Zayan co-founded the award winning multi-brand concept boutique, sauce, where she serves as creative director and head buyer, overseeing 9 boutiques in total. Following the success of sauce, Zayan began developing her eponymous brand: Zayan the Label, which debuted at Paris Fashion Week in 2011 to wide acclaim and recently opened her first standalone in Dubai.
