Like shoes, a girl can never have too many extraordinary special occasion staples in her closet for that “once in a lifetime” event that may suddenly appear on her calendar. Whether gracing the red carpet, attending a movie premiere, saying “I do,” then needing the perfect wedding gown, or simply attending a black tie gala, there has to be a brand out there that can instantly transform inner beauty into glam goddess. Clothing that lends just the right amount of confidence needed to effortlessly step into the limelight.
L’elite Occasions always has the answer to the ominous question, “what should I wear?” and “where will I find something spectacular that’ll make me look drop dead gorgeous?” Always on the prowl for the finest designer attire for the sophisticated women of Boston, L’elite Occasions prides itself on scouring the world for the most interesting designer collections that are anything but mainstream—clothing that’s exceptional, never ordinary.
GEMY MAALOUF is the answer—providing perfect solutions for every special event imaginable.
Born and raised in Lebanon, at a mere 17 years old, Gemy began designing clothes for her friends and family. Her vision was to create simple yet intricate formal wear for sexy, young women with attitude! As her acumen for design continued to flourish, in 1996, Gemy opened her first atelier in Beirut, making her dream of becoming a globally recognized designer a reality. Only four years after starting her label, she reached the fashion world’s center stage when she became one of the first Lebanese designers to show at the Salon du “Prête a Porter” in Paris.
Not one to remain satisfied with the status quo, Gemy expanded her creative innovations to include three other lines beyond her distinctive couture label. These successful collections include: GEMY MAALOUF (luxury haute couture), GEMY MAALOUF Bridal (wedding gowns), “GEMY le Prêt” (a range of formal attire), and “Beside Couture by GEMY” (stylish attire at more affordable prices). Offering a diverse range of clothing collections, Gemy’s four lines share the common attributes of originality, glamour, and incomparable fit with luxuriant fabrics for the fashion conscious woman.
