Georges Chakra

Georges Chakra was born and raised in Lebanon. Now that his name is known worldwide, one might assume that Chakra immediately studied fashion, since his skill is so obvious, and especially that it is also known that that he did develop an early interest in fashion. But no, G. Chakra first followed 2 years in the Interior Design field, in Lebanon. Nevertheless, feeling that it was not what he exactly wanted to work in later on, he eventually travelled to Canada, and achieved a Degree in Fashion Design from the “Canadian Fashion Academy”.
In 1985, he came back to Lebanon as a fresh 22 year old graduate, and opened his first couture house. He started working locally, and would never have guessed that his creations would end up being worn by Actresses like Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren, and many others…
Chakra carried on, and in 1994, he was able to launch his brand “ONNA Group”, which is still expanding.
In 2001, G. Chakra exposed his collection abroad, at Paris’s “Haute Couture Fashion Week” .It was a success, and Georges Chakra has been showing his creations there twice a year, ever since.One can also indulge in admiring his creations in the movie titeled:”The Devil Wears Prada”, which was released in 2006, starring Meryl Streep.
It is known that G. Chakra likes to take risks in every new collection, and that he enjoys the fact of facing a challenge at every fashion season, with a clear goal: to create something different from the previous collection .This daringness, if one may say, makes his path full of upcoming fashion surprises. Hollywood celebrities understood all the potential of such bold creativity. Georges Chakra dresses actresses like Helen Mirren, Tyra Banks, Beyonce, Carrie Underwood, Marcia Cross, and many others.
2007 saw the glorious opening of Chakras’ “ONNA Group” Showroom in Paris, near “Le Triangle d’Or”, alongside no other than…Dior, Lacroix, Valentino…
Georges Chakra always tries to respect the silhouette of the model, and his goad is to let it be seductive and self-confident, yet, also, innocent, highlighted by bright beautiful strong colors. In other words, to show the complexity of the feminine nature. It is clear that G. Chakra is a perfectionist, and his motto is to stress on the detail, because “Everything is in the detail”.Celebrities graced his Fall/Winter 2008-2009 Collection by showing up, like Actress Helen Mirren, Actor Forest Whitaker &wife.“ONNA Group”, now an International Couture Fashion House with luxurious products including accessories and footwear, launched it’s prĂȘt-a couture Collection in July 2008.In September 2008, Georges Chakra chose the magical view at the Seine River in Paris, for his catwalk show.Actress Tyra Banks showed up at the “EMMY AWARDS” wearing a gown of his creation.Currently “ONNA Group” is launching a read-to-wear luxurious line, with more affordable prices.
