The historical costume exhibition with more than 20 costumes represents the beauty and elegance of Persian fashion from 3000 BC to early 19th century. The collection is a visual account of regional costumes, accessories, fashionable women clothing of courtiers & royalties across the Persian history.
Created & funded by the celebrated Iranian fashion designer, Farin Norouzi, the exhibition is to promote the profound historical understanding of multi-faceted Iranian culture and costumes. Passionately, she has delved into the trends of times and re-introduced the forgotten art of handmade embroidery, stitching, appliqués & bead work.
The exquisite artistry reflects the technical skills of achievements in fashion over thousands of years and is a tribute to Iranian history of art.
The embodiment of design fed with innovative nutrients of creativity is vigorously depicted and indulging to view. The costumes conjure up the splendid vision of Persian Empire and are a testimony to stories of love, power, mystery and tradition.
Elaborately researched and re-created, from “Queen Izad Banu” in 3000 BC reproduced from the carved cameo on a silver goblet to Achaemenid era, “Esther” Jewish Queen of Xerxes I and the mysterious lover of Prince of Ghadjar Dynasty by the name of “GolPari”.
Farin Norouzi has “fashionably” rewound time and enshrined the spirit of Persian Heritage.
