Beirut has recently become a bustling and hectic city. This is in stark contrast to war torn Beirut that we saw before the year 2,000. However things have clamed down over the last few years and people have become quite modern and fashion conscious. Today the city prides itself for the various art collections that it has. There are hundreds of art galleries all over the city. The art pieces are created by renowned Lebanese artists as well as international artists.
The fashion and art scene in Beirut is quite lively when compared to other countries in the Arab world. There are many designers and artists who have come from all over the world and settled in Beirut to showcase their works. They have created an arts community that is diverse and vibrant.
There are many universities in Beirut that offer a whole range of courses in fashion and arts. Every year thousands of students take admission in these universities so that they can become well renowned designers and artists. Today the artists and the designers make a very good amount of money from their designs in Beirut. In case you are an artist yourself then there is no better place to showcase your talent than Beirut. Many people work as interns under Beirut artists and designers so that they can learn the tricks of the trade and then become experts themselves.
Regarding fashion, Beirut has a fantastic opportunity to be in touch with the global fashion trends. There are stores in the city of all major fashion designers from Versace to Gucci. These stores adorn several streets of the city and they are also found in Beirut malls. The city is also host to many fashion shows where the big and small fashion houses take part to showcase their latest designs.
