I recently started editing Selections, a quarterly magazine about art, fashion, design and good living.

My first issue comes out in September and I'm excited to be able to feature work by some of today's leading creative lights around the world, particularly from London and Beirut.

Their Toes Write Stories In The Sand,

Plus a 16-page section of art that has been curated especially for Selections by the Artistic Director of the Beirut Art Fair Pascal Odille.

Plus (!) an Art Paper to accompany the fair with highlights and key interviews.

The magazine is published by City News Publishing in Beirut, with Rima Nasser as Editor-in-Chief, and is available in book shops, art galleries and hotels across the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait and Lebanon. We will also be online and in the Apple and Android app stores from next month.

Out 19th September.
