Biography Huguette Caland
Artist, fashion designer, curator and important figure of
the Los Angeles cultural scene, Huguette El Khoury Caland
is the daughter of the
first president of Lebanon, Bechara El Khoury. In 1952
she married Paul Caland, the nephew of the publisher of
Lebanon's L'Orient newspaper, which eventually merged
with her uncle's rival publication Le Jour. This striking
defiance would characterize much of her career over the
course of 50 years, as she maintained a rebellious spirit
and refused to be limited by purported social boundaries,
surpassing expectations in every aspect of her work.
Born in Beirut in 1931, she began embroidering and
painting hand-made gowns while in her mid thirties.
