‘Somewhere over the rainbow’ set the scene for Farzaneh’s magical collection. Blush tone suits with ruched chiffon shoulder pads elevated the sophisticated co-ordinate. As the show progressed the looks evolved from simple yet elegant designs into colourful embellished gowns with feather detailing. A drop-hem pistachio tulle skirt sat below the golden embroidered dress. Asymmetrical cuts curated from the finest silk velvet embodied Farzaneh’s aspirations to ensure every customer feels elegant and confident when wearing her designs. A large pearl beaded necklace and dazzling tiaras accessorised the luxurious garments. A crystal white wedding-inspired dress closed the show before models walked back down the runway in the red-carpet ready looks to ‘Dancing Queen’.
Farzaneh was enchanted by fashion from an early age as she spent her childhood in her mother’s acclaimed workshop continually surrounded by hand embellishments, attention to detail and tailoring techniques. Farzaneh wishes to make every woman feel luxurious in her designs and this has been of high importance since the beginning of her career which took off when she moved to Paris at 25.
