A star has born in the Fashion Industry!.. Rami Kashou!

Yesterday, I had the pleasure to meet Rami Kashou, the finalist of Project Runway! He was my favorite designer of the show, since the very begining! I'm so lucky..! I cried like a baby when I saw him..! At that moment I was working in promotions in a concert, and I was shocked! because I didn't even know that he was in Puerto Rico! He's very nice and good looking too!

This is an interview that I found in

We were elated to interview fashion designer Rami Kashou. You have seen his designs in various magazines and on A-list celebrities. He is also a star on the current season of Project Runway. This is the perfect interview for Rami lovers, as well as aspiring designers for insider tips on design. This is a Haute Mimi first, so enjoy!!

HM: What are your three favorite fibers or textiles to work with?
RK: Silk, Cotton, Rayon

HM: What is your fashion philosophy (what are your strongest feelings about fashion)?
RK: I design in a way that proudly celebrates a woman and her figure. Elegance and sophistication are ever present throughout the details and cuts that I apply to my clothing. My designs tend to be always feminine yet strong.. They celebrate women.

HM: What are some of the first things you think of when you start to create a design?
RK: A feeling that I want to convey.. whether it's a sense of ease, drama, or a character.. That is when I start researching for an inspiration that leads me to the direction I am aiming to go to..Then the rest flows. I go to museums, rent movies whether old or new and so on. I even start draping and sometimes I discover new things and details that inspire me.

HM: Do you believe that any woman of any size can look sexy and glamorous?
RK: I truly do.. I think that it needs to come from within first. If a woman feels sexy and glamorous, then she can wear such clothes and even feel more so that way.

HM: Do you have a favorite piece from your own collections?
RK: Yes! A silk forest green bias draped, asymmetrical gown from my Fall 07 collection

HM: What fashion designer or label do you admire?
RK: Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, John Galliano

HM: Will you ever create a fragrance line?
RK: I certainly will when the time is right

HM: What is glamorous to you?

RK: Dita Von Teese

HM: Speaking of your fashion designs, are you working on or thinking of anything new and innovative for the future?
RK: I am always in this mind frame; thinking of something new for the future. I am always working on the next collection.. at the moment I am focusing on texture (creating rich textures out of plain, beautiful materials), as well as discovering new cuts and proportions.

HM: Do you personally have any favorite types of designs that you love to wear?
RK: I love J Linberg trousers normally. I like mostly vintage pieces though, or pieces that I have constructed and made for myself. It is not easy finding things that fit to my liking so I end up making them.

HM: What do you hate seeing on a woman's body?
RK: I would rather not see, a small animal worn as an accessory, normally peeking out of a L.V. bag, low waisted jeans with cropped t- shirts.

HM: Do you have a favorite fashion icon?
RK: It usually changes from time to time.. at the moment it is Dita Von Teese

HM: What is your favorite type of dress to create?
RK: A dress with unusual lines around the hem or neckline. Something light with drape and flow.

HM: What kind of woman wears your designs?
RK: A strong woman who is connected with her inner self. Confident women who enjoy being different, elegant and feminine.

HM: How has your cultural background effected your designs?
RK: Coming from an Arabic background, I learned to appreciate the elegant flow in draping materials. It influences me to apply in into modern silhouettes throughout the collection.

I come from the same background as Rami so he is my inspiration and lets me know that i can do it too ! he came and added me on myspace once i was so happy and delighted - i thought it was so sweet and humble of him, he wished me well on my designs because he knew i was from his background. God bless him he's a genius and has shown that providing you are extremely talented and hard working as well as fabulous you can make it in the industry no matter where you are from. absolutely love him, Rami, thanks for being you !
