Women of Lebanon: Sarah Hermez

Catalyst of Creativity and Social Entrepreneur
Sarah Hermez

Sarah is an entrepreneur and also a believer in people. Lebanese-Armenian, Sarah was born and raised in Kuwait. After graduating from Parsons New School, in New York City, where she had double-majored in fashion design and media studies, Sarah decided to return to Beirut (her family's homeland) and start a three-year fashion school dedicated to providing scholarships to students that lack resources to pursue their dreams in the field of design.

Believing that there is much talent to be uncovered and exposed in Lebanon, Hermez opened Creative Space Beirut. Following a rigorous yearly application process, the chosen five students share a talent and aptitude for design and demonstrate a commitment to hard work. Tuition is free.
