Carol Hannoun: the impact of style
The young fashion blogger and image consultant gives us her views on elegance.
"I grew up and studied in London, an extremely hip, creative and forward-thinking city. Hence my passion for fashion." A degree in Communication and training in fashion, design and shopping at the London College of Fashion have given her all she needs to do what she loves. Her beginnings in this world are from her creation of caftans for the beach, dedicated to the modern woman of the Middle East, and her image consultant work. Instagram? She started her page as a hobby, but with nearly 70,000 followers, things became more serious. She signed a collaboration with a masculine brand, with the mission to show customers the versatility of the collection and give them style advice. The beautiful blogger is also working on her website carolhannoun.com to launch her summer collection of her "Concept Clutch" bags (@conceptclutch), and is offerring fashion tips and tricks in tutorials on nawa3em.com. Her projects? Collaborations with fashion and beauty brands that she will be revealing very soon.
The Business of Fashion (BoF), the must-see fashion site.
My Instagram accounts @camilacoelho and @negin_mirsalehi for their awesome styles but also for their personalities and their modesty.
My e-shop Net-a-porter.com because it offers the latest trends, and because it has professional service and delivery.
Coco Chanel said, "Fashion comes and goes, style goes on forever". And I firmly believe it. Fashion allows us to constantly experiment and explore new styles and sides of our personality.
It really depends on my mood of the moment, the woman I choose to be when I wake up and the schedule of my day. I can easily go from "chic biker" to "elegant lady"!
Elegance implies simplicity and grace; it's not about the outfit or the look in itself but rather the attitude.
I had always wondered what my biggest weakness in fashion was and, one day, I discovered the answer by organizing my wardrobe: I'm a real shoe addict!
LIFE WITHOUT HEELS IS...
Too flat! An outfit is always more elegant in heels.
MY TOP DESIGNERS
Internationally speaking, my favorite designers of the moment are Balmain, Saint Laurent and Givenchy; their latest collections really represent my style and what I like. Among the Lebanese creators, I have a huge crush on Zuhair Murad and Nicolas Jebran for their masterpieces that illuminate the red carpet.
