In early 2019 I travelled to Jordan with fashion writer, Bay Garnett to meet Syrian women who have been living in refugee camps for the past seven years. In their everyday lives, the women emphasised the importance of clothes and personal style as a way of retaining a sense of pride and identity. ‘How I dress is very important, it shows my strength’ explains Sahar.
