THE SILK ROAD EXPERIENCE GALA
The Silk Road Experience: A Night of Food, Fashion, and Music

December 14th 2015 from 7pm.

Come experience the sumptuous sights, sounds, and tastes of the Silk Road as the American Sephardi Federation hosts a fashion show and souk. For hundreds of years people, goods, and ideas traveled along the famous trade route, creating a rich and diverse cultural legacy. Sephardi travelers and traders, publishers and philosophers, scientists and singers used the Silk Road to transcend borders and barriers (linguistic, cultural, religious) as they pioneered today’s globalized world.

Focusing on textiles, our celebration will feature original designs by Siona Benjamin and Shahin Yousefzadeh (Shahin Design on Madison Ave.). Mumbai-born artist Siona Benjamin, having grown up in the enigmatic community of the Bene Israel in India, synthesizes her Jewish roots with the Hindu, Catholic, Muslim, and Zoroastrian iconography of her homeland. Shahin Yousefzadeh, a member of New York’s Persian-Jewish community, creates custom made couture fashion for professional, stylish and spirited women in New York and across the globe.

The night will feature authentic music, food, dance, tea, and spices of the Silk Road.
Tickets are $36.
