Leading Middle Eastern fashion designer Walid Atallah will return to Couture Fashion Week in New York City on Saturday, February 13, 2010. The much-anticipated fashion show will be held at in the legendary Grand Ballroom of the world-famous Waldorf Astoria hotel.

After graduating from high school in his native Beirut, Mr. Atallah went on to study fashion design earning a degree from the University of Chicago. From there he settled in the fast growing city of Dubai where he launched his design career. His unique designs soon found a loyal following among sophisticated fashion lovers. Mr. Atallah had his first fashion show in Dubai in 1996 which was enthusiastically received by the industry and which included such special guests as famous Lebanese singer Najwa Karam and top international model Nathalie Fadlallah. His next fashion show was held at the world-famous and iconic Burj Al Arab hotel, presenting an opulent collection to a discerning audience, including royalty.

Since then, Mr. Atallah has presented his memorable collections at dozens of fashion events throughout the Arab world as well as in the fashion capitals of Italy and France, where he received an excellence in international design award from the French Association of Fashion Designers. His debut at Couture Fashion Week in New York in September 2009 was widely applauded and enthusiastically received.

Mr. Atallah has become well-known internationally for his exquisite evening and bridal designs, and for his skillful use of diamonds, precious gems and genuine Swarovski crystals, including a fabulous bridal gown valued at US$1.2 million. In 2005 Mr. Atallah debuted his own luxury line of jewelry made with diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds, blue marine and Tahitian pearls, and fine watches have since been added to the line. The talented and versatile designer recently launched his pret-a-porter line entitled "W", which includes trendy jeans and tops for today's fashionable and modern woman.

"I have become more moderate with my designs, and now I concentrate more on the creation of original special effects which reflect a different type of femininity," says Walid Atallah.

Walid Atallah's accomplishments in the fashion industry have been recognized by numerous awards and honors from many prominent dignitaries, and his distinguished clientele includes many members of Middle Eastern royalty as well as well-known celebrities including singers Diana Haddad, May Hariri, Najwa Sultan, Hoda Haddad, Haifa Wehbe, Najwa Karam and Nanci Ajram. Mr. Atallah is on the advisory board of Dubai Fashion Week and has been selected by the Diamond Trade Company (part of the DeBeers group of companies) to be a judge at a diamond jewelry design competition in the Arabian Gulf region.

Walid Atallah continues to expand his business and reputation as one of the Middle East's top designers with branches currently in Al Ain (UAE), Qatar,Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Libya. He is now poised to make his mark on the demanding U.S. fashion scene.
