Shopping in Lebanon

 

There’s no place like Lebanon for style and trends—it inspires the entire region with its progressive attitude towards fashion. So it should not come as a surprise that Lebanon is a key destination for shopping.

 

There are a variety of shopping malls that carry both local and international brands, bringing to Lebanon everything that your stylish heart may desire. These malls also serve as microcosms of social interaction, where families and youth meet up in the restaurants and cafes, spending the afternoon catching up on the latest developments.

 

But Lebanon is also a hotbed of local designers looking to make a name for themselves, both locally and internationally, and its well worth your time to seek out their shop fronts and design studios throughout Beirut. Whatever your style, Lebanese designers offer you unique pieces that’ll make you stand out from the crowd wherever you go.
