For those of you who don’t know, Abboud is a Lebanese fashion designer who was born and raised in Boston. He first started working in the fashion industry at the age of 16; he later joined Ralph Lauren in 1981 and became Associate Director of menswear design. Abboud launched his own label in 1986 and even wrote a book “Threads: My Life Behind the Seams in the High-Stakes World of Fashion”.
Abboud presented his spring – summer 2013 line at the New York Fashion Week last night that was described as an energetic collection far from the staid sensibility of traditional menswear.
Here are a few pictures from last night’s show; and for further details about yet another Lebanese fashion trendsetter, log on to his website: http://www.josephabboud.com/
