Our very first launch took place during Beirut Design Week 2018. We held it on the rooftop of Kalei Coffee Co. to showcase our Lebanon Collection for the very first time. It was particularly powerful having handcrafted the shoes just around the corner, in the Armernian quarter of Beirut, Bourj Hammoud. We gathered with friends, family, and strangers for drinks and a good time. We were honored to introduce our brand and our vision to Prime Minister Saad Hariri, who made a guest appearance, and give him a glimpse of what the artists of Lebanon are creating. The place was buzzing with energy!
We're so thankful for everyone who came and made it a memorable night. Check out the video for some highlights!
Solana looks forward to meeting more people in Beirut over the course of the week, before returning to New York City. Follow for more updates and details on the official US Launch, which will take place this fall.
