#TBLADY: GISELE NAZZAL
“She is my 7 O’clock cup of tea, my morning coffee. She has been an adviser for the brand since day 1.”
Deborah Sawaf, Creative Director and Designer of Thalē Blanc, about Gisele NazzalThere is nothing like that first sip of liquid hope in the morning- it is energizing yet steadying, warm and uplifting, and a timeless staple. Gisele Nazzal, first lady of Thale Blanc, is the fresh air of a crisp cafe, with the lingering aroma of coffee beans that promise to cleanse and refresh the palette, and when she breezes in, heads turn.
“It’s her personality, it's the way she carries herself that really turns heads when she walks into a room, no doubt, and she’s not flashy by any means. She is most sophisticated and elegant in her body language, and the way she is as a person, and I’m so honored that she’s my friend first of all before being a muse for the brand.”
“I am proud because I make the brand. The brand doesn’t make me. I am carrying a Thalē Blanc bag because I love it. Because it’s something that I feel.”
“I won’t go out in the public without my friend’s bag. I felt like I had a piece of her with me and I felt so proud. I feel more beautiful carrying her bag because I know what a genuine person she is, what a talent she is. I have a very personal feeling when I carry her bag. It's like she is with me everywhere.”
