TUNIS FASHION WEEK

Fashion presents The 4th edition of Tunis Fashion Week.

Fashion presents The 4th edition of Tunis Fashion Week. Held in the quiet setting of the Acropolium in Carthage, the event was anything but.
Fashion, it may be the stuff of dreams, but it’s never been more connected to reality then now. With a bit of humor, designer Salah Barka suggests colors and low-cut necklines to people he comes across in the streets of Tunis.
Using humor...It’s a tactic shared by Sofia Guellaty, Editor in Chief of online magazine Masquerade.
Sofia also advises the Tunisian designer Ahmed Talfit. This dishdasha (needs to be changed like in French) was decorated with pieces of glass collected during the Jasmine revolution.
Mixing politics with fashion...it’s a strong message that many Tunisian designers hope to convey.
Amine Bendriouich is Moroccan living between Casablanca, Tunisia and Berlin. Also inspired by the street. His designs are unisex.
It’s the first show for this young designer who studied both in Tunisia and Beijing. His inspiration? Narcissi, Dali, and Machiavelli.
From small local orders to the large scale production. Tunisian fashion continues it’s revolutionary path.
