Fashion Reincarnated exhibition

The fruit of the The Recycled Fashion Project workshops will be on exhibit at Darb 1718 culture centre.

Swedish experts helped spark in Egyptian designers new concepts in fashion, which they carried out in their designs on display at the exhibition.

"Garments, items and installations will be used to express and question identity, androgyny, consumerism and waste. Experimenting with forms and focusing on the stories, memories and history connected to the items, each one-of-a-kind piece celebrates and commemorates the life events, relationships and passions of those who made it, wore it, or tore it apart," their press release describes.

Jazz fusion musician Ahmed Rabie will entertain later on in the evening.
