Located on the coast of Beirut, Saint Balech was named by the people for the people, in reaction to the expensive private beaches of the capital. It was a symbol of freedom and a place for everyone and anyone. Claudia Khachan wanted to revive this concept within the fashion industry, with SaintBalech as a collective and a brand where anyone and everyone is welcome as they are. As a young Lebanese fashion designer, Khachan wants to offer the youth not only a brand, but a new platform of unrestricted and free expression in the MENA region. SaintBalech believes in new alternatives such as up-cycling, a means of local production capable of remaining sustainable over the years while focusing on minimal waste.
