Seymour Art Gallery
was host to a very special fashion show on March 2. North
Shore designer Fariba Mirzaie, a North Shore resident who
has been inspired by traditional Persian costumes, teamed
up with the gallery and featured artist Tania Gleave to help
raise money for the earthquake victims in Bamm, Iran. The
models were accompanied by Persian drummers while guests
were invited to view the fashions, see the art and sample
lots of Persian food.
