In August 2008, Krikor showcased his “Les fleurs bleues” collection at Faraya Mzaar, along with three other young Lebanese designers, in collaboration with Maison Rabih Kayrouz and Faraya Mzaar.
In November 2008, Krikor was selected to showcase his collections at Beirut’s central district Starch boutique. Founded by Maison Rabih Kayrouz and in collaboration with Solidaire, Starch is a non-profit organization that helps launch Lebanese emerging designers.
On August 1st 2009 and at the age of 23, Krikor set up his first atelier in Abdul Wahab Al Inglizi’s street in Beirut, which served him for a while to display his “Au gre d’une brise” and previous collections.
