Brought together by Hothur Foundation under the mentorship of Kulsum Shadab Wahab, the collection titled “The Unbound” paid homage to the creative self-expressionism even with the presence of turmoil and trauma that has changed the survivors' responses and conduct towards the world.

Diving deep into the lines of their artwork, this collection projected a surreal representation of all the cuts and creases of tragic stories working along the torments and struggles faced by the body and mind when trauma dissociates emotion from the body.

Ara Lumiere has been on the official calendar of Milan Fashion Week since February 2019, the designs this yearr graphically represented the thoughts of art and identity that are the core essence of the survivors.
