Post Beirut-Blast: some press support for Lebanese designers

With a vibrant ecosystem that blossomed long before the ones of the Gulf region, let’s see how some showed support for Lebanese designers


Hardly able to leave my black clothes since the tragic explosion that destroyed Beirut on August 4th, here I am wearing the Wrap Dress, the Rosa Maria Jewellery diamond/sapphire “occhio” necklace, and the Johnny Farah “sierra leone” bag



So, ⁣

how distasteful it is from GCC fashion magazines to use titles and rankings such as “21 designers to support”..?

What about the seniors, the pioneers of the Lebanese fashion and jewelry scene? The concept stores? The small haberdasheries? The artisans? The factories? Not enough glamorous? They don’t deserve to be on that list?

There aren’t just 20 – 21 designers who need supports.

Shallow rankings in these circumstances should stop
