Tunis Fashion Week: Fashion mobilizes for Bardo Museum
It’s an exceptional situation and an exceptional event. Running from Thursday, May 28 to Saturday, May 30, in Sidi Bou Said (in northeast Tunis), the 7th edition of Tunis Fashion Week is mobilizing to defend access to culture.
Beyond the fashions shows and various events organized like every year, an exhibition and sale intended to contribute to the preservation of the Bardo Museum’s cultural heritage, which was attacked on March 18, will be organized at Dar Zarrouk, in the village of Sidi Bou Saïd.
Several prestigious international brands have already confirmed their attendance at the charity event, which is being put on at the initiative of the Chambre Nationale Syndicale de la Couture Tunisienne.
Included among the attendees: Agnès.b, BCBG Max Azria, Chantal Thomass, Longchamp, On Aura Tout Vu, Pierre Cardin, Saint Laurent and Sonia Rykiel.
The exhibition, which will also be accessible to Fashion Week guests, is being produced by the visual artist Meriem Bouderbala, who is represented in France by the Trigano gallery.
This year, Tunis Fashion Week is also partnering with the event "Jaou-Tunis 2015", overseen by the Kamel Lazaar Foundation. The contemporary art event will be held in conjunction with fashion week.
Finally, the international event will also involve an exhibition entitled “After Tunis Fashion Week 2015" to be held at the Joyce Gallery in Paris.
From June 10-16, the gallery will showcase highlights from the week in an atmosphere evoking the charm of the event, including the best silhouettes as well as a photography exhibition.
