This year, La Mode A Beyrouth, a fashion show in Beirut, returns for its second autumn edition to showcase Spring Summer 2017 collections by Lebanese designers. The event, which premiered last year, has the goal to compete with other international fashion capitals as well as to give emerging fashion designers from Lebanon the opportunity to present their fashion creations. La Mode A Beyrouth will run from October 17 through October 22 and is brought to you by L.I.P.S. Management. The event will be held at Forum de Beyrouth and will feature a great number of established and aspiring fashion designers from Lebanon. Before La Mode A Beyrouth officially kicks off its collections, there will be a red carpet event for fashion industry insiders and their close friends and family. Another reason why organizers created the La Mode fashion event was to bring back Lebanese designers from other fashion capitals, where they are regularly showcasing their Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer collections. Lebanon needs its designers to improve the economy and promote the country’s fashion industry. In fact, last year’s first edition of La Mode A Beyrouth was a huge success both internationally and domestically, which is why it’s not surprising why so many emerging Lebanese designers signed up to participate this year. For this year’s edition, La Mode partners with BoConcept, which makes urban design, as well as Make Up For Ever, which focuses on makeup products. This year’s lineup of fashion designers includes the Lebanese designer Sandra Rizk, international brand BCBGMAXAZRIA, the Lebanese international designer Nicolas Jebran, as well as last year’s La Mode winner of BYFDC, Géyanna Youness. Here’s the schedule of La Mode A Beyrouth 2017: Each participant will be judged by a panel of judges, and the winner will get gifts and a cash prize.
