11.1 DIALOGUES ON THE ART OF ARAB FASHION: TALLI: Silver Between Tradition & Modernity
Event Description: Dr. Reem El Mutwalli, and Paula Quetglas Llop, Creative Director and Cofounder of NIILI discuss the upcoming exhibition.
Talli is a traditional embroidery technique found in the Arabian Gulf countries, particularly the United Arab Emirates, and refers to the craft of weaving a braid using flat metallic straw twisted, twined, or braided with threads to create cords, braids, bands, or ribbons of varying patterns and applying it to a garment as an embellishment.
Paula Quetglas Llop is the Creative Director and Cofounder of UAE based fashion brand, NIILI. Here she shares her vision of creating high-quality contemporary, and sustainable pieces that resonate emotionally with the United Arab Emirates’ traditional roots. This conversation continues with our current exhibition at Zaman Awwal in the Mall of the Emirates.
