Meet the Designer: Nimany Behnoud of Nimany Fashions

Iranian fashion designer Nima Behnoud and friends engaged in experimental garment alteration which became emblematic of the youthful underground scene in Tehran in the 1980s. Today the same hunger and fascination has turned into an organized clothing line — NIMANY — and now their dream is to use their brand to share their magical teenage years in Tehran. Persian calligraphy and quotes by Persian poets are used as visual elements for a new fashion line, born in the underground scene of Tehran.
