My Beirut adventure! I’ve been working closely with Sakina for the last months and because she was invited as the Guest of Honor for Beirut Fashion Week, I was assisting her during this proces. We worked very hard on moodboards for hair and make up, music, video’s, models, preparing the dresses etc. If you want to read more, please click here for the blogpost of Sakina on her website. The show went well and we were hearing only positive reactions! Before, in between the fittings and rehearsals and after the show, we visited also the MBC and LBC studios where Sakina was interviewed on (live) television. Such a great experience to see all of this.
It was also my first time in the Middle East, and I loved it so much! I was overwhelmed by the kind and warm people, the cozy streets, the amazing food and last but not least; the music. I listened to this song during these days, and it became my own soundtrack for this journey (even though the beginning of the song is in Spanish, haha).
I’m very happy and lucky to work internationally: being a Dutch girl working for a French couturier having her show in Lebanon.
