Originally Lebanese, Rani Zakhem was raised in Nairobi, Kenya, where his family moved to escape a war-torn home-country.
His attraction to the vibrant colors and alluring beauty he found around him in Nairobi, as well as his fascination for aesthetics, shaped the kind of designer Zakhem would become. After graduating with a degree in economics and one in interior design, Zakhem decided to pursue what he loved most: fashion.
A graduate of Parsons, the New School for Design, in New York, where he was mentored under some of the most prestigious names in the industry, Zakhem later decided to venture out with his eponymous label in 2009.
Ready-to-wear, couture and bridal gowns make up Rani Zakhem’s diversified line. Zakhem has created a premier luxury collection for the effortlessly chic, fashion conscious woman. With the smart, sophisticated woman in mind, Zakhem creates designs that accentuate not only her body, but her attitude as well.
A sense of glamor and understated elegance are evoked through his insistence upon luxurious fabrics that mesh feminine with modern silhouettes.
