Dreaming of the way life should be, and can be, is the inspiration behind some of the world’s most delightful and exquisite fashion designs.

It’s one of the reasons why fashion never goes out of style. Even during pandemic times.

An innovative designer that is taking the fashion world by storm is Sandra Mansour.

Ms. Mansour’s designs are the new style.

At her home, sandramansour.com, her team smiles, “Sandra Mansour, a fashion house known for its intricate ready-to-wear line and bespoke bridal wear, was established in Beirut, Lebanon, in 2010. With knowledge and passion for painting, paired with her experience in the fashion world, Sandra’s vision came to life, adorning women around the world. A brand dedicated to creating artistically driven pieces with timeless silhouettes, made of delicate fabrics with extreme attention to detail, as seen in the hand and thread embroidery technique and style. A blend of romantic yet strong creations fashioned to make you dream.

We at Sandra Mansour pride ourselves in our belief in sustainability. Our website is a platform to view our collections and place your orders. Enjoy our personalized semi-bespoke service.”

Appreciation all around. We love to browse fashion and her store is a wonderland to spend lots of awake time, dreaming in.

Though her name is new to some, Vogue Magazine were visionaries in touting her coming out party back in 2016, sharing about Sandra, “Instead of five-figure gowns that demand a red carpet or black-tie invite, she specializes in ready-to-wear you can mix and match and wear from day to night, with prices ranging from $300 to around $3,500.

Central to Mansour’s aesthetic is a mix of couture-level details—like hand-placed sequins, beading, and embroideries, which she honed during a stint at Elie Saab—with cool, offhand silhouettes.”

Our associates at San Francisco Grappling Stars featured Sandra as well.

Speaking of their Fleur du Soleil line, Sandra’s team adds, “This collection is inspired by strong female artists and the beauty of nature. These films are an ode to the Fleur Du Soleil collection. A collection in which, we intricately combined our love for nature, surrealism, and poetry. With the intention to make one dream, where larger than life moments manifest themselves elegantly with emotion.”

So nicely put. We are inspired to dream.

Sandra is apparently very creative and an exceptional student. We might add, a well sought after collaborative partner too.

That’s what H&M thinks.

H&M is a Swedish multinational clothing-retail company known for its fast-fashion clothing for men, women, teenagers and children.

As of November 2019, H&M operates in 74 countries with over 5,000 stores under the various company brands, with 126,000 full-time equivalent positions.

It is the second-largest global clothing retailer. The company has a significant online presence, with online shopping available in 33 countries. Perhaps you are one of their customers.

Since January 2012 H&M introduced the H&M Design Award, an annual design prize for fashion graduates. The prize is established to support young designers with the beginning of their career, like Ms. Mansour.

In April 2014, H&M joined Zara and other apparel companies in changing their supply chain to avoid endangered forests. H&M teamed with Canopy, a non-profit, to remove endangered and ancient forests from their dissolvable pulp supply chain for their viscose and rayon fabrics.

H&M gives back to the community as well.

The H&M Foundation is a non-profit foundation that was established in order to implement positive change and improve living standards, such as education for children, worldwide access to clean water, strengthening women on a global scale, and being environmentally aware.

Now H&M would love to collaborate with Sandra.

Great idea. Their partnership is what fashion dreams are made of. You should read about it.

H&M Collaborates With Beirut-Based Designer, Sandra Mansour, For A Feminine Collection Dedicated To The Love Of Nature

NEW YORK, Aug. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — H&M is pleased to announce a collaboration with Sandra Mansour, the eponymous Beirut-based brand known for its dreamy and daring aesthetic – always with a modern coolness to it. Inspired by strong female artists and the beauty of nature, the collection features intricate designs in a muted color palette, where handcrafted details like edgy ruffles and layers of romantic fabrics create a youthful, empowering look. The Sandra Mansour x H&M collection will be available at hm.com and in-stores beginning August 27th.  Due to the devastating events in Beirut, H&M will donate $100,000 to support the work of the Lebanese Red Cross.

Sandra Mansour established her fashion house in 2010 and her attention to detail and craftsmanship, mixed with inspiration from art and her surroundings in Beirut, shines through in all her designs. For the Sandra Mansour x H&M collection, Sandra draws inspiration from elements of nature and female artists such as Toyen, Dorothea Tanning, Lena Leclercq, and Bibi Zogbe. The result is a feminine and strong range of dresses, blouses and skirts, a tailored blazer, and a printed T-shirt and hoodie. Fit and flare shapes and ruffled hems are mixed with volume and statement details in an earthy color palette of greys, ivory and black. Mansour names each of her collections, and the Sandra Mansour x H&M collection is titled “Fleur du Soleil” after becoming fascinated with the way a sunflower follows the sun from day into night. Dot, floral and sunflower motifs enrich sheer, delicate fabrics and emphasize the craftsmanship, while the feminine silhouettes exude power and urban edge.

“The inspiration for the H&M collaboration was nature and natural elements. Especially the sunflower, which represents the cycle of life, and its dependency on sun and light. Poetry and painters inspired the selection of fabric – the dark laces, jacquards, and embroidered organza. With the Fleur du Soleil collection, I want to talk to woman around the world by sending a message of hope, something we really need right now,” said Sandra Mansour, CEO and designer.

“The first things you notice about Sandra Mansour’s designs are their dreamy qualities and sheer beauty, but then you get further drawn into the craftsmanship, the storytelling and the modern youthfulness. There’s also something empowering about the femininity. We’re proud to be collaborating with such a trailblazer and look forward to launching the collection worldwide!” says Maria Ostblom, Head of Womenswear Design at H&M.
