Wazen, who appears on FN’s 2019 list of designers on the rise, founded her label in her hometown of Beirut in 2013, where all of her handmade styles are produced.

“I don’t want my shoes to wear the person, which is very important. The fact that they are made in my hometown, there’s so much soul in them,” she told FN. “But they do have a twist. We follow trends without making the shoes too loud.”

Celebrity support has been “directly impactful” in driving Wazen’s success. Aside from Union, A-list fans include Jennifer Lopez, Olivia Culpo and Emily Ratajkowski.

“J-Lo is what gave my brand this boom. The celebrity impact has been insane. A lot of my orders are coming from the U.S. now and that wasn’t my clientele at first. There’s a waiting list for the shoes the celebs have worn,” Wazen explained.
