Rabih Kayrouz Awarded with Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres de la Culture

One of our favorite fashion designers, Rabih Kayrouz has recently been awarded with the national title Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres de la Culture, by Aurelie Filippetti, Minister of Culture and Communication in Paris.

The Lebanese designer was deeply touched with this award which has been established in 1957 to recognize eminent artists and writers, as well as figures who have contributed significantly to furthering the arts in France and throughout the world.

In a heart warming thank you speech, Kayrouz stated that he is so proud to be rewarded with this medal which recognizes his long journey that mixes both cultures – Lebanese and French, quoting these few words of Josephine Baker which he considers so dear to him: “J’ai deux amours, mon pays et Paris”.
