Heading to Washington D.C for spring break? Or maybe you currently reside there? Either way, there’s an upcoming pop-up event to add to your agenda—Caravan Beirut. Set to take place on April 8th and until April 11th at Georgetown Park under the patronage of the Lebanese Embassy in Washington D.C., and organized by Mariana Wehbe Public Relations and Bucolik in partnership with the American Lebanese Chamber of Commerce, Caravan Beirut is a new pop-up shop concept that’s dedicated to bringing the best of Lebanon to the U.S. capital.
The park space—located in the city’s historic district—will transform into a luxury market-themed exhibit space designed by Rabih Geha, the Lebanese architect behind Beirut’s electrifying nightlife hot spot, Überhaus. Inside, expect to find a handpicked selection of both established names and cutting-edge emerging talents. Look for fine jewelry pieces from the Mukhi Sisters and Bil Arabi by designer Nadine Kanso; ready-to-wear collections by Nour Hammour and Karoline Lang; summer escape essentials from Mojo Beach; and look-at-me clutches from Sarah’s Bag. Covetable vintage accessories curated by Lina Chammaa and Hala Mouzannar, the founders of Madame Rêve, will be on display alongside a range of lifestyle, art, and photography vendors.
Caravan Beirut will also feature chefs from Beirut’s weekly farmer’s market Souk el Tayeb. Once there, embrace the spirit of giving back as 5% of all proceeds will go towards Skoun, a Lebanese, non-profit organization that helps fight addictions.
Caravan Beirut opens on April 8th and runs until April 12th at Georgetown Park in Washington D.C.
