406 Gouraud Street beirut
Beirut’s fashion darling, Lara Khoury, is one of the success stories from the entrepreneur incubator Starch Foundation, which was started by Lebanese fashion master Rabih Kayrouz to fuel the city’s creative scene. Born in Beirut, Khoury studied in fashion and apprenticed under Elie Saab before striking out on her own. Her sleek designs are now staples in the closets of the region’s best-dressed, but no one may wear them as well as Khoury herself.
