Event description

Description

Tala Raassi grew up in Iran dreaming of expressing herself through clothing, a dream which saw her sentenced to forty lashes for wearing a mini-skirt. She escaped to the United States where she established her own swimsuit company and found international success, but also witnessed freedom’s darker side.

Named one of the “Most Fearless Women in the World” by Newsweek magazine, Raassi will speak at St Kilda library about her book, her journey, her encounters with Donald Trump at the Miss Universe pageant and her belief in the power of fashion as a symbol of freedom.
