The Tunisian poet Mnaouer Smdeh wrote: "You are for people the prophet of words, so speak, suffer and die in words. " Contamination is an attempt at dress language, where words intermingle, letters intermingle, tongues are loosened and bodies metamorphose. In a world that is destroying itself by turning in on itself, clothing conveys the thoughts, fears and uneasiness of the people who wear it. The collection presented is thought of as an alternative to self-destruction.
