Coming Soon: Krikor Jabotian at Harrods
Harrods will be welcoming the winner of the Eveningwear award, the talented Krikor Jabotian, with a showcase of his latest collection.
Lebanon-born and an alumnus of the École Supérieure des Arts et Techniques de la Mode in Beirut, Krikor Jabotian began his journey at Elie Saab before setting up his own studio at the age of 23. His opulently embellished, romantic designs speak volumes of his creative talent and innate understanding of beauty — a winning formula for this couture category.
