KEEP IT REAL
Fashion often makes you dream, about Hollywood, movie stars, glamorous celebrities and all things unattainable.
For the latest issue of A Mag, in which pop culture is celebrated, contributing photographer Jimmy Dabbagh and contributing stylist Makram Bitar were given carte blanche to offer their interpretation of fashion and how it gels with pop.
They chose three everyday Lebanese – designer and artist Rami Dalle, assistant stylist Sophie Safi and young schoolgirl Amalina – and shot them in Aïshti and Aïzone outfits, creating a canvas of streetwise luxury.
