SANDRA MACARON Multidisciplinary Art

Sandra Macaron is a multidisciplinary artist whose work has been featured in notable publications and was awarded several prizes. Story-telling is how you would define her creations. Behind every collection is a tale, either to revive social awareness or to convey nostalgic sentiments. Drawn to the vintage world, each design constantly re-invents traditions with a fresh new contemporary technique, the result is a 'mélange' of contrasts. DD SCULPTURE AT MAYRIG Sandra Macaron will be unveiling ‘DD’ a multi-functional sculpture, dedicated to her Grand-Father, in memory of the Armenian Genocide centennial. Come and discover a personal story concretized and revived into a practical idea at Mayrig Garden, Gemmayze.

SARAH’S BAG Accessory and Bag Design

Sarah Beydoun belongs to a generation of Beirut-based designers who came of age during the country’s sixteen-year civil war and are now contributing to rebuilding the city’s cultural life through their creative passion. Beydoun was one of the first designers in Lebanon to bring Middle Eastern pop culture into the mainstream, and to revive and reinvent the region’s rich traditions of craftsmanship, embroidery, crocheting and textile making. Her line of handmade handbags and accessories is designed around the skills of prisoners and ex- prisoners she has personally trained and worked with for the past fifteen years. WOMAN RISING In addition to launching its summer collection, Sarah’s Bag presents “Woman Rising”, an interactive experience that takes visitors into the heart of what the social enterprise of fashion is all about. Woman Rising draws visitors into the unmediated world of Sarah’s Bag’s, the prisoners who have been working with the label for years.
