:: ABOUT THIS EVENT (EN / AR) ::
A Fashion art project aiming to explore Sudanese tribal costumes and to reflect the art behind it. Bringing different tribal costumes into the futuristic visionary fashion world and introduce the globe to what Sudan poses in this art domain. This project comes to show the world that Sudan is not only what media and politicians have been trying to reflect to people and impose into their minds. It is a land full of diversity in ethnics, religions and colors that have been oppressed over the decades and detached from its identity. This oppression by Islamic regime and the world's media presenting Sudan in a cloche way have led to the world's ignorance with these heritages and cultures. And the oppression being applied on these communities have created a huge gap in people's perception to their own culture and heritage. It has also created hate towards men who do jobs that are perceived as women's job such as fashion design and tailoring. There for I came up with this project idea to express my love for fashion and allow for the coming generations of Sudan to be able to explore their passion without fearing the judgment of their society and to understand that there is no art that is gender bonded. I as a queer artist coming from these oppressive / oppressed patriarchal societies where any difference is classified as a threat that needs to end in whatever way, I want to show people of my land and the world how our cultures are unique and how worlds media shouldn 't make us hate it neither hate ourselves for being part of it. Through this art project I want to celebrate this heritage and display Sudan's fashion in a modern futuristic vision that makes us see how precious it is to look back at our roots and be proud of them. In this project ten Sudanese tribal costumes will be redesigned in a modern futuristic way using different recycled materials and fabrics. These costumes have carried the heritage of tribes and kept them uniquely identified by their techniques of sawing and tailoring as well as their bright color selection. My passion for fashion and design drives me to explore my rich multicultural region and aspire to present these rich cultures and their fashion in a way that haven't been introduced to the media and the globe. As well as tell the story of black fashion artist and fanatics that have been foreseen over the decades.
