This project is an Avant-garde fashion design project inspired by a 20th century Egyptian surrealist poet, Joyce Mansour. Upon looking back at female poets through the historical timeline of the 19th and 20th century it was noticeable that many of them were overlooked. Thus, this project is a tribute to the work of one notable Egyptian poet that had a great mark on surreal poetry in France, yet was overlooked here in Egypt. The fashion pieces and patterns are an inspiration of her first book of poetry “Screams”. Showing that a feeling can be expressed through any form of art.
