LE­BANESE DE­SIGN­ERS LIGHT UP BEIRUT EX­HI­BI­TION

Ekaruna - - News Round Up -

The ‘Naked: Be­yond the So­cial Mask’ ex­hi­bi­tion ran un­til Jan­uary 17th at Le Yacht Club in Beirut, and it gave young tal­ent the chance to proudly show off their work. The ex­hi­bi­tion was cu­rated by ‘House of To­day’, a non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion that looks for and nur­tures new tal­ent on Le­banon’s de­sign scene. The work of 27 Le­banese was on dis­play, with 3 oth­ers from Italy, Ger­many and France; each in­ter­pret­ing the ex­hi­bi­tion’s ti­tle theme in their own way. The head of ‘House of To­day’ and founder of the ex­hi­bi­tion, Cher­ine Ma­grabi Tayeb, told Asharq AlAwsat, “I wanted to give young tal­ented Le­banese de­sign­ers the op­por­tu­nity to be dis­cov­ered, be­cause tal­ent needs to be given a hand.”

As well as the tal­ent, world-renowned fash­ion de­signer Elie Saab was also in at­ten­dance, and he pre­sented three clutches ex­clu­sively de­signed for the fair.
