Cityzen by Azin transforms aerial views of cities into wearable art, taking inspiration from colors and patterns of the earth from above. It promotes a global dialogue and diplomacy through fashion by transcending physical and mental borders believing that the arts bridge differences, technology reveals beauty, inter-connectivity leads to new discoveries, and taking the long view brings our commonalities into focus.
The Cityzen scarf is a universal article of clothing that links women and men across the world sharing their commonalities and respecting their differences. It provides a breathtaking perspective of the world and leverages fashion for social impact. The Cityzen bespoke garments are derived from the superimposition of the topography of each city onto the body creating an organic approach to design and connecting the heart and soul of a place to a person.
