In Between the Look: Fashion, Identity, and the Spaces Between

Wednesday, November 28 5:30-7:00pm

Join us for our next Conversations on Culture: Diaspora program, an ongoing lecture series in the Global Museum co-hosted with the SF State Anthropology department. Come hear from Hushidar Mortezaie, a fashion designer, visual artist, and activist whose work blends folklore, gender politics, and iconography. Mortezaie intends for his designs, featured in Italian Vogue and worn by celebrities such as Beyonce and Sarah Jessica Parker, to reflect the past, present, and future of his heritage and inspire the next generation of Iranian-American youth to take pride in their culture.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Iranian Diaspora Studies at SF State. Light refreshments will be served.
