Baghdad Hosts First Fashion Show In 27 Years | Fashion News

 

At Iraq’s Royal Tulip Hotel this week, models took to the horseshoe shaped runway for Baghdad’s first fashion show in nearly thirty years. Around 500 people showed up to the event, which showcased the work of six home-grown designers, most of which had variations on traditional Arab themes and an elegant blend of modern fabrics and patterns. The message of the event was one of solidarity and resistance – an act of support for the Iraqi people. Marketing manager, Abdelkader Ghassan echoed the message saying “If you are here in Baghdad, it’s the biggest act of defiance. It’s not a war with jets and tanks but with ideas“.
