We recently worked with three digital influencers in Beirut (Philippe Yacoub, Nadia Mneimne and Sabrina Cesari) to help promote the launch of the newly redesigned and incredibly fashionable smart fortwo and forfour via a special Test Drive Event in Beirut Souks. Fans got a chance to test drive the new smart with the influencers and chat with them about specific topics during the rides.

Here are some photos from the smart Test Drive event at Beirut Souks, featuring the new fortwo and forfour!

The smart Series: Sabrina Cesari

Sabrina Cesari is a Beirut-based fashion blogger born in France and of Italian decent. Both her grandmother and mother being fashion designers aroused her own interest for the field early on. She went on to get a degree in pattern-making and working for three years in a bridal workshop boutique in Paris. She moved to Beirut just a few years ago and decided to make use of her fashion design experience by creating Pause Couture, an open sewing workshop. Follow her on Instagram (@sabrinacsari) to get a peek at her life behind the scenes!

A special thanks to Jessica K for dressing Sabrina at the event.

After the test drives were over, we got a chance to sit with Sabrina and pick her brain about a few things.

Here are 10 questions we asked her about fashion and design.

1. Favorite fashion brand of all time?

Zara and H&M because you can find all the latest trends and amazing prices.

2. Fashion item you’d never leave the house without?

My rings, I would feel extremely empty If I leave the house without them.

3. Fashion item you find yourself collecting:

BAGS. Is it possible to have enough of them??

4. Fashion item you’d never wear, like ever:

Never say never. Anything is possible when we’re talking fashion.

5. Favorite designer of all time?

Elie Saab, I love his vision of femininity, modern and young. He knows how to include the Lebanese culture in his creations.

6. Favorite styling in a movie/TV series?

Gossip Girl. I can watch the show over and over and over just for Serena and Blair’s outfits.

7. Your muse when it comes to fashion design?

My mom. She is a fashion designer just like me, I inherited my love for fashion from her.

8. Top fashion city with a style sense:

Paris will always be the city of fashion for sure, but Beirut shows to which extend a woman can be feminine and elegant all at the same time.

9. Raghunter is my:

“TRIP ADVISOR” – the fashion version.

10. The best thing about the newly redesigned smart fortwo & forfour:

Its super modern design and size. Extremely practical for a very active life in a crazy city like Beirut.
