Exorcising Fashion in Cairo


Dear Shaded Viewers,

If you are in Cairo this week, you'll want to check out this exhibition that is co-organized by my friend Susan Sabet, Editor in Chief of Pashion Magazine. I'm bummed that I can't be there, as it's taking place behind the Hanging Church in Old Cairo aka Coptic Cairo, a maze of ancient streets that go back to the 6th century. It's an amazing area to visit. My friends Ahmed and Daki of Sabry Marouf will be there showing their jewelry line. (Sorry for posting this late–the opening is happening right now but the show is up for a week.)


Djeghalian, Le Fash-Yon Collective, in collaboration with PASHION magazine,
present EXORCISING FASHION: THE NETWORK, on June 10th at 7.00 pm at
Darb 1718, Cairo. The exhibition is on from June 10th to the 17th.

It is
culmination of the fashion workshop offered at Darb1718, that addresses and
contextualizes contemporary Egyptian fashion practice. This exhibition
articulates the matrix of practices by the participating students, guest
lecturers, designers and collaborators, initiated by the 55-hour workshop by
Kegham Djeghalian at Darb 1718 last May 2013.

Ramzy Lehner and
Heba Refaat will present an electronic sound and vocal performance at the
opening day as well as some fashion branding interventions

The exhibition
will travel to Paris in September 2013 during Paris fashion week.
