On September 15 in Paris, the Paris-based luxury leather jackets brand Nour Hammour is hosting «Paris for Beirut» charity event: the brand will unveil its new collection and immediately sell it in order to donate all the proceeds to the Lebanese NGOs.
The event will take place at the Galerie Duret (7bis Rue des Saints-Pères, 75006 Paris) from 11 am to 9 pm, including a cocktail reception from 6 pm.
Nour Hammour‘s creations are worn by Bella Hadid, Kaia Gerber, Beyoncé and featured in Vogue, Vanity Fair, L’Officiel, Grazia, etc.
Statement from Nour Hammour, the brand’s founder :
“My homeland, Lebanon, is currently going through an unprecedented humanitarian crisis, and it breaks my heart. In every Lebanese family from Beirut to Abidjan, from Los Angeles to Paris, someone is hurt. I firmly believe that we – Lebanese people from all walks of life, both in the country and in the diaspora – must stand in solidarity with the most vulnerable of our compatriots. This is why I decided to use the economic and media opportunities I have as a fashion designer to raise funds which will all be donated to the Lebanese NGOs.”
Nour Hammour’s event fits into a wider context of charity initiatives, launched by the Parisbased Lebanese designers. Just 2 months ago, fashion designer Hala Moawad has inaugurated, in the Galerie Charraudeau in Paris on July 3 under the title «It’s Lebanon’s anarchy that bothers you», the charity group show featured in Vogue US, Vogue Arabia, L’Officiel Paris, Vanity Fair, Purple, i-D, etc. Among more than 90 creatives who took part in Moawad’s exhibition, there were Jacquemus, Rabih Kayrouz, Lou Doillon, Nikolai von Bismarck and Nour Hammour herself.
