    I love the oriental culture so much.
    and its getting more and more known to european countries...
    for example there are so much arabic songs in clubs here in munich and arabic dance music sounds so good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    but a question to the iranian fashion designers: Will there be a site where I can see pics or something like that?

    thanks acid for sharing. my bro will be ther since he is one of the helping members of the foundation.

    actually eguana, IRANIAN has nothing to do with arabic ;)
    we decent from the ARIAN race whereas the arabic dont. and the language and culture is not the same either. but dont worry, no offence taken :p


    i wish i was there to see the exhibit :blush:

    How very cool! I wish I could go, too. I love the V&A. Probably one of the highlights of my time living in the UK was when we took a weekend trip to London (I was studying in York) for the sole purpose of going to the V&A.

    I hope everybody here who is UK-based gets a chance to check that out--sounds like it would be worth the trip.
