My name is Mina Gerges (@KeepingUpWithMina) and I can turn a curtain into a $10,000 dress!

@KeepingUpWithMina is a project I started on Instagram because I don’t like societal expectations that confine how we’re supposed to act, dress, or look in order to fit in. In doing these pictures, I found freedom from restricting gender binaries and learned to celebrate something I love doing.

What started out as a hobby using my sister’s hand-me-down makeup turned into a liberating and creative outlet for me to turn towels, curtains, and garbage bags into celebrity’s most intricate red carpet dresses and elaborate photoshoots.
