Jacquemus And Other Luxury Brands Join Hands For A Charity Exhibition To Help Lebanon

70 luxury designers, artists and photographers have joined hands to raise funds and help communities in Lebanon struck by the ongoing crisis. Titled ‘It’s Lebanon’s anarchy that bothers you’, the charity exhibition organized by Parisian designer Hala Moawad, will feature pieces by luxury designers from around the globe, including Jacquemus, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Giambattista Valli. The exhibition will open its doors on 3 July at Paris’s Galerie Charraudeau.

Lebanon is one of the worst-hit Arab countries amidst this pandemic, with nearly a third of the population living below the poverty line and one million living each day with less than Dhs20. Proceeds from the exhibition will be going to a local NGO in Lebanon, Beit el Baraka.

Moawada herself is a victim of the Lebanese civil war. “Lebanon represents what the world should be in culture – a beautiful mess of identities. And it is one of the most amazing countries I’ve ever experienced. I don’t want it to end like this,” she said in a statement to The National.

In addition to international fashion labels, the exhibition will also feature collections from the region’s favorite Rabih Kayrouz, Noor Fares, Sandra Mansour and Nada Debs. Photographers like Emilie Kareh and Oliver Hadlee Pearch will also extend their support. Photographs acclaimed by Algerian photographer Moahamed Bourouissa will also be displayed during the Parisian charity event.
