DINA JSR Fashion Design

Saifi Village, Georges Haddad Avenue +961 1 972 297

Launched in 2012 DINA JSR is a Parisbased womenswear label that offers a seamless transition from elegant daywear to easy-to-wear nightwear. Intended for working women in urban environments, DINA JSR puts forward a wardrobe for contemporary needs that is both practical and luxurious, always easy to dress up or down. Created by a former gemologist, it follows a similar earthly sensibility: organic shades, sculptural volumes, a daily, elegant shield that shelters and empowers the woman inside. It is a cross between the three cultures: it bears the urban, forward thinking experimentation of London, the artisanal know-how of Parisian atelier practice and the sheer sensuality and luxurious ornamentation of traditional Lebanese sensibility.
