JLo y Shakira se sumaron a la campaña del diseñador Zuhair Murad por Beirut

Alessandra Ambrosio, Sofia Vergara y Adriana Lima también se solidarizaron posando con la remera que diseñó el modisto libanés con fines benéficos.

Una vez más, la moda demostró ser una de las industrias más solidarias y comprometidas con lo que sucede en la realidad social.Después de la explosión en el puerto de Beirut (a principios de este mes) la ciudad quedó gravemente afectada. Causó la muerte de casi 200 personas y dejó más de 5.000 heridos. Como su fuera poco, la destrucción del 85% de las reservas de trigo del país puso en peligro la seguridad alimentaria.

Exclusive interview with @vogue Link in Bio “You can’t imagine the damage.” Speaking from his house in the mountains 20 minutes outside Beirut earlier this week, Zuhair Murad was still in shock. On Tuesday, due to COVID-19-related restrictions, his entire team had left the house's headquarters near the port of Beirut by 6 pm, minutes before the explosion. “I cannot express my sadness,” he said. “We saw a fire in the port but we didn’t think it was that serious. We left, and then came the two explosions. Everything vanished in one minute. Thank God we did not lose anyone. But you can’t imagine the damage.” As followers of his Instagram have seen, with this tragedy Murad lost everything he had in Beirut: his offices were completely destroyed, along with 80% of his archives and all his work for the upcoming ready-to-wear and couture collections. A small portion of his work remains in the safety of his Paris offices. With his team gathered at his home to plan a way forward, the designer expressed his gratitude for the support of his team and his family, friends and clients. “I want to thank everyone who has given us moral support,” he said. “I have received so many messages and I feel very happy to be surrounded by so many caring people. They believe in me, and we need to continue despite all the tragedy, even if it’s from scratch. I have a message and a mission about beauty, happiness, love and peace.” Murad said that this week he would be organizing a fund to ask friends and fans – famous and otherwise – to help Lebanon. The designer plans to send out a personal letter worldwide in the next few days. “We are in a bad situation. We want to do something for Lebanon,” he said.

Tras este dramático suceso, gran parte de la capital del Líbano debe reconstruirse. Y para apoyar a su ciudad natal, el reconocido diseñador de moda libanés Zuhair Murad (y el preferido de numerosas celebridades de Hollywood), decidió diseñar una remera de edición limitada bajo el lema Rise From The Ashes (resurgir de las cenizas) para recaudar fondos que irán a dos organizaciones libanesas sin fines de lucro.

Una de las primeras en hacerlo fue la cantante Jennifer Lopez, quien es muy amiga del diseñador y en numerosas oportunidades y red carpets, usó varios de sus diseños exclusivos.
