Drawing inspiration from the ancient Persian game

Like many fashion designers, Fazaeli’s inspirations come from his particular point of view and his own background. Unlike many designers, he began his career with a blog, designed to highlight the oft-ignored aspects of Iranian society. The Tehran Times quickly became a cultural phenomenon inside and was enthusiastically received and featured by the Western press because of its fresh point of view. The tremendous success of The Tehran Times has not distracted Araz from pursuing his design career. One month ago he presented his first collection during SS16 Paris Fashion Week at Le Royal Monceau Hotel and as you can imagine he knows not only how to be impeccably stylish, but also understands a few things about how the oriental world should be proud of their rich tradition and make a perfect combination with the western world.
