Arabiia in UPI- Jan31
“Imagine the ability to convert a belly dancing outfit into a burqa and vice
versa, equipped with two servo motors and switch.
That’s what MIT graduate student Ayah Bedeir imagined when she spent nearly four days making this project
“Arabiia” to illustrate the media stereotypes typically associated with Arab women.
Bedeir joins a slew of designers partaking in the fashion show “Seamless: Computational Couture”
(seamless.sigtronica.org), fusing technology and fashion to create conceptually innovating clothes whether
making a statement or demonstrating the next wave in the fashion industry.”
