Part fashion show, part forum, this lively workshop for women explores fashion, style, and identity.

My Dress, My Image, My Choice began in 2001 as a way to build bridges and cross cultural understanding between Muslim and non-Muslim women.  Created by Saara Sabbagh of Benevolence Australia, the event provides a safe and positive environment for women to connect, share, discuss and celebrate over fashion, style, and identity.

For 10 years, the program toured Australia with sell-out shows before coming to a close in 2012.  My Dress, My Image, My Choice returns to Melbourne for one day only with two one-hour workshops presented by Benevolence Australia, as part of the Islamic Arts Festival at Immigration Museum.
