Beirut Re-Store: Inside a new Sale Raising Money for Lebanon

Another Magazine, October 2, 2020

Today sees the launch of Beirut Re-Store, a new online marketplace selling an array of objects – spanning fashion, art, photography and lifestyle – to raise money for vetted non-governmental organisations, working to provide both long- and short-term relief to those affected by the Beirut explosion, an event that left 200 dead, 6,500 injured and an estimated 300,000 homeless in August of this year.

Beirut Re-Store features contributions from over 100 designers, artists, photographers and other creative practitioners, including Jamie Hawkesworth, Jonathan Anderson, Rafael Pavarotti and Fay Wei Wei. Photographers Harley Weir, Jack Davison, Johnny Dufort and Senta Simond have donated prints, while Grace Wales Bonner, Kiko Kostadinov, Martine Rose and Vaquera have shared clothes, in addition to the Dior and Yohji Yamamoto archives, with many more besides.
