in 2012 i worked with salma outefy on a manipulation of a sketches of mine in a paper fashion workshop in townhouse.
trying to answer an old question; is it a beautiful flower? or it is a guilt? the question was subjected to the female body in the term of a desirable body, in this period of my life i was twisted between cultural taboos about sex and body, and masculine thoughts about women as a “desirable object; female body”.
i stated this question in those conceptual dresses.
the flower; was inspired of the ancient egyptian lotus flower.
the guilt; was a sleazy red dress sieged with sharp needles.
