Inspired by one of Picasso’s most renowned paintings – the Spanish Civil War fuelled
Guernica – Fashion Director Maissa Azab commissioned a young and previously unknown artist to re-imagine the famous work had it been born of the Egyptian revolution. Youssef Mekawy’s resulting mural – telling the story of 18 days in Tahrir in riveting abstract detail – sets the backdrop for one of Azab’s most stunning fashion spreads yet, one that features fashion that’s made in Egypt, for Egypt and by Egyptians… the world’s hottest superheroes!
