Thursday night saw a familiar crowd, dressed in black and oozing cool, gathering in Downtown Beirut for a fashion event – but this show came with a twist.It was this blending of love for design and humanitarian concern that moved Lebanese fashion designer Sarah Hermez to found CSB in 2011 .In the coming session, a Palestinian and a Syrian student will join 17-year-old Amir al-Kasm from Homs, Syria, in representing the non-Lebanese contingent on the program.A spotlight was on 24-year-old Amer and 23-year-old Kais, who have just finished the program.The students share a love of Japanese designers, a flair for modern androgynous designs and a desire to give back to society, which is engrained in the CSB's teaching.All the pieces shown on the runway and many more by the school's brands CSB ready-to wear and Second Street, will be on sale from Friday in Beirut Souks as part of Khan al-Joukh, a project that will bring together young designers and design initiatives to Downtown Beirut.Design has the power to change the way a person perceives the world, Hermez said.
