Amine Jreissati was raised in Beirut and did his studies at Istituto Marangoni Paris, where he learned everything about fashion. After working as an intern and doing some small jobs in fashion (Rabih Kayrouz and Sarah’s Bag), Jreissati was recruited to be part of the team behind the launch of Marie Claire in the Middle East. After four years, he is now the head of the Fashion Department.
What’s hot right now?
It’s all about contrast! Contrast of colors, of styles, of people, of crowd—it is all we see for the moment. It’s hard to define nowadays what’s “in” or what’s “hot.” The world of fashion is very wide. There is no specific trend that is going to last months. It’s always about “the moment.”
What are you favorite shows from Paris fashion week?
Louis Vuitton was by far the best show. But I kind of had a crush on Haider Ackermann’s collection for s/s ’12.
