Fashion Show – Calling for Models for ZAGBA’s 25 anniversary celebrations

Calling all models! If you are looking for an easy way to be involved in the 25th anniversary planning, here is one. July’s celebration will feature a short fashion show and we want you in it. Participation will involve attendance at three rehearsals and a walk on stage in your own best outfit (or we can provide one) – easy and guaranteed fun! Either volunteer yourself, your clothes, or both! Can’t decide? Email us and we’ll help you figure out how to get involved. 🙂

Depending on your role in the show, we will need you for rehearsals on the following dates (see below for a description of the roles):

June 7, morning: Opening and Iranian Models only
June 7, afternoon: Milk Story Models only
June 13, afternoon: Indian Models only
July 19, afternoon: All Models
July 24: All Models — Final Run-through
July 25: Performance!

If you would like to join, please email with the “role” you would like to play and/or the outfits you can lend. Please also include your phone number. If you would like to walk with your spouse/significant other, please also indicate that.

Sign up ASAP and by May 25!

Wherever they have gone, Zarathushtis have simultaneously adopted the dress of surrounding cultures and created their own unique fashions. The “collections” of the fashion show will celebrate this versatility and multicultural spirit, while paying homage to the pride of being Zarathushti.

1) Opening: Depiction of discovery of fire.
Need: Man dressed as Hoshang (discoverer of fire).
2) Iranian Collection: Traditional and modern Iranian attire.
Need: Men and women in Iranian ethnic wear.
3) Milk Story Collection: What our Zarathushti forefathers and foremothers wore — fashion unique to Zarathushtis.
Need: Men and Women in old Persian and Parsi attire. Think: your grandparents’ clothes — long, layered colorful skirts and headscarves, baggy trousers, dhuglis and fetos, “vintage” saris/garas and white sari blouses, long long sudrehs. We also need a man dressed as a Mobed.
4) Indian Collection: Traditional and Modern Indian attire.
Need: Men and women in Indian ethnic wear.
5) US: Formation of Boston Zarathushti community and birth of ZAGBA.
6) Closing: Depiction of ZAGBA today.
Please let us know if you have any questions — and sign up! 🙂

With Best Wishes,
Karishma, Mehernush, and Roshni
