City in portraits – Solidere Annual Report

November 12, 2012

I just received the Solidere annual report!

For this year’s edition, 70 individuals who live or work in the center of Beirut, were chosen to be photographed by Spanish photographer Miguel Ángel Sánchez. People from all industries: music, architecture, TV, food, cooking, etc… were chosen to be part of this project. I was one of them! Yes!!!! I was so lucky to be featured in this catalog as the accessory and textile designer at Starch in Saifi.

The photoshoot took place last April. We were asked to bring items that characterize our profession. The fisherman got fish, the florist flowers, the textile designer scarves. etc… The portraits were photographed in a black box created at the Beirut Souks with special studio lights.

The catalog is out, and the photos look gorgeous! You can check them below.

Thank you Limassol and Nathalie for this great opportunity! And thank you Alexandre Dossat for the beautiful text.

“Mom & I” photoshoot at Beirut Souks

March 18, 2012

Mother’s day is just around the corner and if you are wondering how to surprise her this year, you can take her to the Mom & I Photoshoot happening at the Beirut Souks. They turned one part of the Beirut Souks into a photo studio for 10 days, (from the 15th till the 25th). Everyday there’s a different photographer, and you can reserve your slot! Also you get the chance to choose a designer’s piece to wear for your picture. My scarves are there! : ) The space is really nice,  and the people are super friendly. I loved the idea! So hurry up!
