Yangon Fashion 1979, by Bellay Studio 

Opening on 4 March |  Maha Bandoola Park

Exhibition from 4 to 19 March

Curated by Lukas Birk, this exhibition is the first showcase of images taken in late 1970s Yangon at Bellay Photo Studio. Founded by Har Si Yone in 1969, the studio has been family run ever since and is still active today.

These beautiful images give us not only a surprising insight into the fashion of 1970s in then Rangoon but also a rare glimpse of a time when the country was experiencing the “Burmese way to socialism” and was isolated from the rest of the world.
