Its been almost a decade since the birth of the fashion industry in the region. We as an agency and our clients are still facing challenges finding the right editorial models here. Even though there are more than 3 established model agencies and a smaller market, we are terrified of shooting great stories. We are pushing most of the agencies to improve and things have become better but still there is some distance to go. It's silly to have just one good model a month.

We have always enjoyed working with one of the best local value fashion brands in the region, REDTAG.

Both TVC's shot in Beirut really tells us that local brands are brave and they think modern as the times change every minute.
We really love this new commercial and we hope you will love it equally.

We have been really digging Alice's Music before we conceptualized Beautiful Blood Magazine. It was almost 4 weeks before we were going to print, we wished of her to be the face of Vol.1. BBTV has created its first cover with Alice, seen pure and real, shot by Jonathan Kope is an absolute miracle.
