Idia’Dega is dedicated to eco-fashion design using sustainable fabric, recycled materials and non-toxic dyes. Idia’Dega is the solo work of founder, Tereneh Mosley. Idia’Dega created a second line, a global eco-design collaboration. Creating an Indigenous global network of artisans to collaborate with, the first of these partnerships is with OMWA: Olorgesailie Maasai Women Artisans of Kenya.
Setting up shop at The Residence—thanks to support from Mattress Factory President and Co-director Barbara Luderowski and fresh off the heels of debuting her new collection at New York Fashion Week, artist, designer, educator and Pittsburgh native Tereneh Mosley will share her work and creative practice with Pittsburgh audiences during a multimedia exhibit and a creative design panel taking place on Thursday, February 25th, 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Also on view is Mosely’s Eni:HersSpring 2016 collection, which received support from The Pittsburgh Foundation and The Heinz Endowments’ Advancing Black Arts Program.
During Thursday’s panel discussion, Mosely and Droege will be joined by multimedia producer Njaimeh Njie, architect John Barbera, art historian and author Kilolo Luckett, Land Art Generator Initiative founders Robert Ferry and Elizabeth Monoian, and Mecca of Kulture Art Gallery director Errol “Mobutu” Reynolds. Panelists are inviting the community to discuss the question: “What is native or born of/by the culture of Pittsburgh, and how does it influence art, music, architecture, public policy and life?”
The exhibition will be open to the public starting at noon on Thursday Feb 25th. Idia’Dega at The Residence is also open by appointment through March 3rd. To schedule an appointment contact: tereneh [at] idiadega [dot] com.
