PARIS, Feb 6, 2010 / FW/ — If Lord Byron was alive today and reviewing this show, he would have written, “She walks in beauty like the night, of cloudless climes and starry skies.”


Or, maybe, Georges Hobeika is a poet at heart, because like Byron, he presented an ethereal portrait of a young woman but instead of using words, he used silhouettes and colors, like contrasting white with black and light with shadow the same way nature presents a portrait of the firmament.

And like Byron who said that his muse combines “the best of dark and light”, Georges Hobeika also used contrast using black and white as a base for his collection and then the colors of the rainbow in between, thus celebrating beauty in a poetic way.

Entitled “Arabesque Illuminations” and with the mantra “Always elegant, the Hobeika woman radiates,” the poet who is Georges Hobeika reaches to Lord Byron’s ethereal muse.
