Beirut-born designer Georges Chakra is proof that hard work pays off! Chakra set up his first studio in the living room of his home, sketching and sewing the garments himself before launching his debut couture collection in Paris in 2002. He gained notoriety after appearing in The Devil Wears Prada. â€œIt was an honor to be one of the chosen few included in this pop culture and iconic movie,â€ Chakra has said. Since then, heâ€™s become a favorite of celebrities â€” everyone from Dame Helen Mirren to Katy Perry to Jennifer Lopez have rocked his designs.
Chakra stands out from the crowd by using unique textiles to make modern masterpieces. Most recently, Katharine McPhee wore a Swarovski crystal-adorned creation, Gina Rodriguez stunned in a tulle gown with feather appliquÃ©s and Miranda Lambert donned a chiffon dress with hand embroidered striped sequins.
