Ibrahim Shebani

Born in 1982 in Germany and grew up between Egypt and Libya, Ibrahim Shebani studied architecture at the African University of Benghazi, and worked in Advertising and marketing for 15 years before deciding to chase his childhood dream of creating a fashion label inspired by Libya’s culture and heritage. 

Born in Exile 

Shebani created his eponymous label Born In Exile in 2018. And presented his first collection for FW19 in Paris.

“As a designer of the brand, I aspire to interpret the heritage of my country through strong designs and statement pieces that define the undiscovered beauty of Libya, my eternal muse,” says Ibrahim.
It is also why Shebani has gained momentum amongst consumers and insiders alike.

Born In Exile was recently chosen as one of 700 applicants for the Vogue fashion prize, and again as a finalist for the Fashion Trust Arabia Prize.
