It was exactly one year ago when I came across a beautiful project, something that perfectly matched my searching for fashion linked to a conscious and cross cultural aim.
I’ve found this in a special project, based in Paris, organized and brought up to life by the great effort of Emma Camara and its associations Les Passerailes de Rosa- together with a strong team behind- with the specific object of creating an interaction among different cultures, around a same theme: beauty and fashion.
This year we’ve made to be there and the afternoon we spent by getting to know new inspirational people it’s something we would love to share with you!
My foul’art event, for its second year, brought to Paris a mix of cultures, mix of languages, a mix of lifestyle. We sat together with the most influential people in the Modest industry and not only, like Nabiila Bee, Olivia Pepette, Juamericangirl Pin up, Mohamed du collective Zammounda, Julie Les Franjynes and Singhstreetstyle talking about diversity on the social networks, how did they approach the social media, why and how people reacted to them. We loved to listen to Laurence Lecuyer, anthropologist and specialist of the Indian cultural aspects, who taught us the different values and usages of scarf in India, with a comparison in the Muslim culture and the multiple meanings in wearing it.
We had the chance to meet a few brand France based ( that in fact we already followed) such as Gulshaan, taking the latest catwalks of Modest fashion scene and that it’s also approaching a new high end vetements collection; Barcha and its collection of scarves that can turned to be cool turbans, Enssoie with its marvelous mousse-soie and colorful foulards, la Parisienne du turban et Oyez le foulard, with their different stylish creations. We got also hypnotized by the real process of silk making- with real maggots of course- that reminds us of a little bit of poetry, of a transformation of something into a great beauty.
In the end the evening took off and we enjoyed the défilé of the talented artisans we met.
I love when I can be influenced and I can reach the vibes of other people, I love to dive myself in something I didn’t know before , I love to enrich and wide my knowledge and to get in touch with different personalities. I think that we all need to diversify our cultural luggage ; it doesn’t weight as a real baggage and it can take you traveling away with lightness and good spirit.
Congratulations to Emma and all the team for the great work!!
