Drawing inspiration from the ancient Persian game

Talking to Araz Fazaeli of The Tehran Times gives you a new perspective on fashion. The fashion designer and founder of The Tehran Times Street style blog left at the age of twelve and continued his high school education in Vancouver and later Geneva. During what was supposed to be a gap year at the age of eighteen, he found himself quite inspired by his journey back and created a collection of sophisticated, modern manteaus, which was a huge success among the Tehran elite. He enrolled in Parsons Paris in 2008, and ultimately received his diplome styliste/modeliste from Esmod Paris in 2012.
