Description

While we wear the garments, they also wear us. Spanning diverse time zones, regions and cultures, the films in this program speak of the covered stories of culture and industry beneath fabrics and clothes, as well as the truth of self-esteem, ambitions and longings. Believe it or not, the garment pieces are sometimes more eloquent than the owner.
