Slow Factory‘s Holiday Pop Up Experience is called Beirut > NYC – and it’s not one to be missed. The organizers of this Brooklyn shopping experience have invited 5 Lebanese designers to showcase their work at A/D/O on December 8 to share their perspective from their city.
Sarah’s Bags, Yours Truly, Tribute, Super Yaya, Studio Safar, Atelier Nanou are visiting New York from Beirut just for the occasion. Their work will be displayed alongside the latest from the hosting fashion activists, Slow Factory.
“Expect to see traditional dress, cool t-shirt designs, design journals, handmade purses that empower women in prison, cool street-modest apparel freeing the modern day muslim teen, and Slow Factory #fashionactivism classics,” the brand shared on its website. “Slow Factory will also be soft launching their latest collaboration with Iranian artist Taravat Talepasand, their collection is titled ‘Decolonize.'”
