The event aimed at cleaning up Lebanon with more than cheeky smocks, as it wove some of the most pressing issues facing Lebanese society into a performance-like fashion show highlighting some the country's well-known emerging designers.Lezem, a group of some 25 young people, organized Sunday's event with the help of high-profile sponsors like Nokia and Elle Arabia magazine. Selma Zaki founded Lezem as a university student organization in 2011 and aimed to galvanize young people to become active stakeholders in Lebanon's future. On the agenda Sunday night was a laundry list of social, environmental and political causes: pollution, racism against migrant workers, sectarianism, poor public utilities and domestic violence. It looks as if the smoke is going onto the woman's body, as if it's suffocating her in a way," said Sabaji, a guest of honor alongside half a dozen other emerging Lebanese designers who volunteered a piece or two for the show.All young people themselves, the designers in some cases felt strongly about the message their designs were sending.
