“Think about your wardrobe like you would an art gallery.
An art gallery isn’t dripping in art pieces..you have a collection of each piece that is worth a lot, and also says a lot about you, the curator.
So, just as we admire a painting for each brush stroke and the brush strokes each comprise the painting and contribute value to it, we should be looking at our clothes in the same way.
So each thread, each time a seam is sewn I think it’s really important that that contributes to the piece as a whole. It’s not severed from who made it and that in fact, that really informs how the piece looks and what the piece can provide us, even on a spiritual level….What does it mean that something that’s the product of violence is constantly touching our skin?”

We told you we had some new projects coming to the #amaliahvoicespodcast in 2019, and we’re excited to finally be bringing you Small Talk – a podcast digest at Amaliah Voices that will answer some hard hitting questions on some of our favourite subjects, from people who know their craft.

Sara’s in conversation with Hoda Katebi, writer, activist, radical anti-capitalist and a rising voice in the fashion industry. She’s the author of online political fashion publication JooJoo Azad, the book Tehran streetstyle, and hosts #becauseweveread, an international book club born from her internet viral clap-back on WGN morning news.

At whose expense is the demand for modest fashion? Is it unrealistic to want to cleanse the supply chain? And is Islam at direct odds with capitalism?…

Hoda’s calling out some of the world’s biggest brands and a culture of ‘Firsts’ in representation – you can catch a cheeky snippet of her speaking on these issues here:
