Dominican-Lebanese fashion designer Jusef Sánchez has been making waves in his home country for some time.
Known for sophisticated, feminine pieces with clean lines and a refined silhouette, it’s perhaps no surprise that the young designer was recently chosen to dress two of President Abinader’s daughters at his inauguration in August 2020.
But it’s not all about the red carpet glamour - the designer’s SS20-21 collection marked a new street-savvy direction for the brand, unveiling a series of oversized unisex shirts, shorts and sneakers - all launched during the country’s first online fashion catwalk.
As one of the country’s most famous fashion designers, we figured Jusef would know some pretty amazing places on the island. We asked him to share just one of his favourites…
AMANERA - PLAYA GRANDE
Situated on the Dominican Republic’s north coast, Amanera is one of the island’s most exclusive resorts. Perched above the palm-backed beach of Playa Grande, the secluded location is home to a number of villas, as well as a spa, restaurant, and beach club. The perfect place for one of the country’s hottest fashion designers to unwind!
