Azin Valy, a modern activist woman, about her work:
"I thought this would be a nice way to rally women together and introduce them to some things about different places that they are not aware of and would enjoy. Through this way, a percentage of their money could be dedicated to these challenges. We cannot resolve them but hopefully this idea of a fashion brand that promotes a dialogue through culture will open up some minds and eliminate some preconceive notions about some places.
There are so many forces behind making final transformations that, as an architect or a designer, I don’t have the ability to make these concrete changes, I can only propose them. Hopefully one day Cityzen will reach the point that it would be able to apply some of its ambitious visions and missions.
In particular with the scarves because they are universal pieces of clothing that can apply to every culture. It’s also the staple of our company. Anyone from any part of the world could potentially purchase it and wear it as they wish and I’m hoping that this is the connecting bound between women around the world."
