Creative Space Beirut was founded in June 2011 by Parsons graduate, Sarah Hermez, and her former Parsons professor, Caroline Simonelli. On June 22, 2012, CSB received official status as a Lebanese non-profit association.
CSB has been featured in both Lebanese and international media outlets, including Marie Claire magazine, Al Jazeera News and Brownbook magazine. In three years, CSB students have produced and sold over 200 one-of-a-kind, hand crafted, couture pieces, designed and constructed out of our Beirut workshop.
Creative Space Beirut (CSB) is a free school in fashion design providing quality creative design education to talented individuals who lack the resources to pursue a degree at increasingly costly institutions of higher learning.
