A Palestinian designer from the al-Ashi family pins the bodice to a gown at their atelier in Gaza City on June 3, 2013. The family started their own clothing line -wedding dresses and evening gowns- due to the difficulties and cost of smuggling and importing items into the Gaza Strip, either through legitimate crossings controlled by Israel to the north and east and Egypt in the south, or through smuggling tunnels dug under their southern border with Egypt and when the Egyptian border is closed.
