Designer Naghmeh Kiumarsi has led the way, transforming items like the manteau — a long, loose coat — into fashionable jackets that would pass as top-line fashion in the Western world. Kiumarsi’s work is unique for its use of traditional Iranian textiles and Persian poetry (her scarves carry decorative calligraphy and images from some of the most popular Iranian poems).
“The ideas in my designs come directly from the experiences of my life combined with the courage to express them through the textures and forms,” Kiumarsi said.“’Remember to Fly,’ my latest collection, conveys the positive message that the sky is the limit. If we want to kiss the sky, we should remember to fly and not be afraid.”
One of Iran’s most popular brands is Poosh Fashion, designed by Farnaz Abdoli
