Raised in the arms of a modest family in Lebanon and being surrounded with family members that work in tailoring,
Mahfouz opened his first bridal boutique in 1985 with his sister in Beirut, Lebanon.
After the success of what was known as a tailoring workshop,
Mahfouz started designing and drawing semi complete couture collections in April 1990.
June 1999 was the launch of the designer’s first fashion show in which he showcased a complete collection of wedding gowns at the Royal Plaza Hotel, Beirut.
The official launch of the Abed Mahfouz Bridal line “Dreamer” was during the Spring/ Summer fashion season in June 2001.
