পোষাক মেলা (The Dress Show) is an exploration of Hamtramck’s Bangladeshi community through the lens of its cultural dress shop owners.
Intersecting narratives of the immigrant experience, entrepreneurship, faith and place are presented through sound and documentary-style photojournalism.

This photo series was originally displayed at Public Pool Art Space, a part of Hamtramck’s broad and diverse community. Hundreds of people from Hamtramck and elsewhere were able to experience public radio storytelling in a new and dynamic way.
Now, we are happy to bring The Dress Show to the Islamic Society of North America Convention. To learn about the shops we visited go to wdet.org/shopswevisited.
