(un)veil is a series of laser cut women’s garments serving as a commentary on mandatory Hijab wearing enforced by the Iranian government. In Islam, women’s bodies are not allowed to be viewed by men other than their husbands. The Iranian government considers Chador to be the ultimate form of Hijab and punishes women who do not abide by their standards. This piece is a traditional Iranian Chador with Islamic geometric patterns cut throughout. The purpose of the Chador is to fully cover women and protect their purity from men’s eyes. However, most people including myself view this form of clothing as a form of oppression. As a protest to the original purpose of Chador, this piece takes on a more revealing fashion form like lingerie. Young women in Iran fight to push the limits of the mandatory Hijab by implementing fashion and makeup.
