Born in Beirut, Lebanon, American designer Tony Hamawy was raised in the garment business. After learning the industry in the family firm, he went on to apprentice with a traditional women’s clothier. There he trained in the old-world methods of couture and handwork.
Positions with various well-known Lebanese designers, catering to the fashion elite of the Gulf and Europe, eventually spurred Tony to formal study in Paris. After completing his education in French fashion design there, his journey brought him to New York to begin his own line in 2007.
His vision is to combine European detailing with New York flair in elegant but playful collections
of bridal dresses and evening wear.
