Palestinian Designer Jamal Taslaq Debuts at the UN


Now residing in Rome, Italy, Jamal Taslaq was born 1970 in Nablus, Palestine, and is now one of Rome's top fashion designers.

Jamal's forte' is uniting the colors and feel of the Mediterranean with the "Made in Italy" craftsmanship.

In an interview at the United Nations Jamal stated: “When I left Palestine I understood that I must do something for me and my people to show the world that we are the same as other people. We want a life. We want peace. We love. We have all the feelings that make us the same as other people.”

Bread & Butter Names Haman Alimardani Creative Director


Probably one of the largest, most prestigious ready-to-wear fashion shows is Bread & Butter, which, founded in 2001, has taken place in Cologne, Berlin, and Barcelona.

Bread & Butter has recently elected a new Creative Director, Haman Alimardani of the label Hamansutra.

Born 1977 in Tehran, Iran, Haman Alimardani grew up in Germany and the United States, with music playing a large role in his upbringing.

Alimardani completed his studies of fashion design at the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, going on to work with Kostas Murkurdis and the Bavarian State Opera in Munich.

I think Alimardani will be an tremendous asset to Bread & Butter and I wish him success.
