Born and bred in Paris, Nadine Mneimneh returned to Lebanon in 2001 and obtained her Bachelor of Business Administration from the American University of Beirut. Six years of work experience in fashion, and another bachelor degree in fashion design from ESMOD Beirut later, she launched her eponymous label with the help of the Starch Foundation in 2010.

Nadine has always been driven by her passion to create pieces that would bring out a delicate femininity, blending charm and simplicity. She defines herself as a maker, as she designs and executes her collections solo from her atelier-studio in Hamra, a traditional and lively neighborhood of Beirut. This thoughtful and slower way of working enables her to focus on the construction and fit of her pieces, ultimately aiming for a timeless aesthetic.
