Seymour Fashions for Iran

Mar 2, 2004

By Catherine Barr

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.

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.

Drummers Marnie Kucy (left), Cody Parker, Camille Breitman were led in their Persian percussions by Nima Ghaemi.
Beautiful textures and colours give fashion designer Fariba Mirzaie's creations a fabulous feminine, flowing feel. Jacquie Morgan (right), Seymour Art Gallery director/curator was happy to help make the event happen.
Wearing traditional dress that sparkled and shimmied, models Manijeh Ghaffari (left) and Elmira Jones led off the show.
Girlie and glamorous and just a little bit peek-a-boo, models Susanne Reuss, Darlyn Brenes and Serim Afyonlu showed it off.
Artist Tania Gleave, who was very much a part of the evening, is featuring her work at the gallery including this penguin inspired piece entitled "Infrequent Flyers".
Model Gail Mackenzie is usually part of the drum ensemble, but this night she worked the catwalk instead.
