Milia Maroun has spent her career in the relentless exploration for empowering women through the freedom of expression. Her designs are formed on the belief that comfort and style are inextricably linked to her lifestyle. Milia’s designs sit at the intersection of natural fabrics, techno fabrics, vintage and antique textiles. She creates fashion accessible online, and her one-off art-couture pieces can be found in art galleries in major cities.

Leila Pazooki is an Iranian artist whose work is primarily an inquiry into the concept of borders, and the manner in which information, language, and cultural associations change as they cross physical and imaged boundaries. Pazooki’s multi-layered works serve to dissolve the distinction between what is tolerable and what is taboo. More recently, Pazooki’s exploration of borders has brought her to consider media and the perceptions, paradigms, cognitive processes, and associated relationships that it stimulates and maintains. Deeply cosmopolitan, her works can be read as visual material aiding in the fight against the hegemony of borders that stratify the world by way of political and canonical prejudices.
