Design for social change
SALIM AZZAM JOINS STARCH
Upon graduating, Lebanese designer and illustrator, Salim Azzam decided to use design as a force for social change, documenting oral narrative traditions and local customs through his work. This year he’s part of Starch, an NGO that supports new design talents. They will be exhibiting his work; shirts and dresses featuring his illustrations, embroidered by local craftswomen. Through the embroidery, these women tell their own stories and the final product is Azzam’s first fashion collection, Sitt el Sitat.
