Last August Gholamali Baluch organized a workshop in Tehran. He asked a group of young Iranian artists to create a visual impression of this intense city, expressing their ideas and inspirations using the language of fashion. The resulting works were then to be put on show back here in Milano as a sort of greeting from Tehran.
Here is one of the outfits that resulted from this workshop. The design is by Iranian textile and fashion designer Marjaneh Abbasi.
In her piece she explored a way in which to mix antique persian lithographs with a more modern textile, such as denim. To her this project was a way to bring art and cultural heritage back into our daily activities, using fashion to add the old colours and patterns to our lives again.
