East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. Told in beautiful illustrations from the author of the equally incredible PersepolisEmbroideries gives a face and a voice to Islamic women who wish to share a story that we can all relate to in one way or another, whether we’re a man or a woman, whether we’re religious or atheists, whether we’re free or trapped or liberal or conservative, it doesn’t matter as long as we’re real and alive.
