Local Fashion Beirut | 5 Places to Buy Fashion & Donate to a Cause This Ramadan

Tips

If you're wondering where you can shop this Ramadan season while helping others in need, we've found 5 places you can do just that.

Take the time to discover each one of these organizations/brands and hoepfully you'll find fashion items you like as well as the cause behind where the proceeds will go.

1 // CREATIVE SPACE BEIRUT

Creative Space Beirut is a free school in fashion design providing quality creative design education to talented individuals who lack the resources to pursue a degree at increasingly costly institutions of higher learning. It's one of the organizations we know pretty well and highly admire.

Each year the students produce their own designs which are then available for sale at exhibitions organized by CSB, as well as at the CSB atelier and showroom. If you're looking for a really unique piece, we highly recommend you visit their space and see what's available.

Address: 1st floor, Nazaretian Building, Al Nahr Street, Mar Mikhael, Achrafieh | Email: thecreativespacebeirut@gmail.com | Website | Facebook Page | Instagram: @creativespacebeirut

2 // HIMAYA

himaya

Himaya is an organization dedicated to break the taboo surrounding child sexual abuse, especially when it comes to incest and risky environments. Himaya works not only with the child but also with the family and environment as a whole.

In an effort to spread the message in a fashionable-statement-outfit-maker way, Himaya has designed cool t-shirts and bags, which powerfully shed light on the taboo surrounding child abuse. The proceeds obviously go back to the organization to fund their activities.

You can buy them on Lebelik right now.

3 // JOUD BOUTIQUE BY THE CHILDREN'S CANCER CENTER OF LEBANON

We’ve all seen these bracelets before, but most of us don't really know what their purpose is. It turns out that every bracelet purchased contributes to bringing a local project or dream in Beirut to life. That sounds pretty inspiring.

You can buy your bracelet online here.
