Thousands tuned in for Nancy Ajram’s TikTok concert, The Magical Live Show, on Friday evening.

And for the occasion, the singer collaborated with Lebanese designer Hussein Bazaza to create a number of custom-made outfits which she wore throughout the performance.

Ajram sported five jackets designed and customised by Bazaza, each made from recycled materials or updated old garments, in line with the sustainable nature of the brand. The five tailored jackets included a reversible baseball jacket, emblazoned with Ajram’s initials, a colour-block cropped bomber, and a sequined cropped blazer.

Each jacket was designed to match the feel of the music, with stylist Caroline Cassia working alongside director Samir Saryani.

The designer’s favourite look was the shimmering cropped blazer, featuring “an 80s feel, fully encrusted in a sea of colourful beadwork with bright-green peak lapels and exaggerated Neapolitan cuffs framing the piece”.

“It is an utmost pleasure to finally have this project come to life, especially after the Beirut blast that had tremendously affected us all, both physically and emotionally,” the designer said. “Nancy’s positivity and capacity to always radiate joy through her music, despite the darkest times, is not only dearly touching, but also desperately needed these days in hopes of a melodious tomorrow.”

The concert was initially set to take place on August 6, but was postponed due to the explosion in Beirut. It was Ajram’s second major online concert since the pandemic shut down most of the regional live music industry in March.

Back in May, she delivered a successful Eid show that was streamed on YouTube. Shot on a rooftop in Beirut, the concert featured Ajram performing stripped-down takes of big hits Betfakar Fi Eih and Badna Nwalee El Jaw.
