Dialogues on the Art of Arab Dress: How Dress Tells a Story

8 December '20 at 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Join Dr Reem El Mutwalli and Adhra Al Mansoori, Head of Caribbean Affairs, UAE Embassy in Havana, Cuba on Tuesday 8th December when they will explore ‘How Dress Tells A Story’ in our next edition of Dialogues on the Art of Arab Fashion.

During this one hour session they will explore how people can tell their story through what they wear, how a garment or piece of adornment can bring untold stories to life and turn incorrect stereotypes upside-down. Our speakers will explore the significance of symbolism, colour, style and heritage when outfits become more readable as they discuss how UAE dress has evolved through time.
