This garment is a modern take on traditional Afghan dress, made from black silky fabric with large, oversize sleeves that feature intricate Afghan patterns in gold. The standout feature of this garment is its high, covering collar that represents the silencing of women in Afghanistan and around the world, who are fighting for freedom and equality. The dress is paired with a full-length silky skirt, giving it a graceful, elegant silhouette. The use of rich, luxurious fabrics and intricate detailing reflect the rich cultural heritage of Afghanistan, while the bold design elements call attention to the ongoing struggle for women's rights.
The Mahsa garment is a tribute to Mahsa Amani, a symbol of women's struggles for freedom in Iran. The name "Mahsa" means "like moon" in Old Persian, and the garment was named after her to honor her memory and the fight for women's rights. The design of the garment is inspired by the moon, which is black but reflects the light of the sun. In this sense, the garment is meant to reflect the inner light and strength of the women who are fighting for their freedom.
