Fabü: NYFW, Fall 2011 Ed.

25 Feb

“Fashion is so close in revealing a person’s inner feelings and everybody seems to hate to lay claim to vanity so people tend to push it away. It’s really too close to the quick of the soul.” – Stella Blum, Victorian fashion designer

Behnaz Serafpour killed it at Fashion Week…

Serafpour’s show was all about elegant, timeless chic, featuring a primarily neutral palette of taupe, powder blue, slate and black. Notable looks included cozy knit capes, flowing gowns with matchstick-patterned lace bodices, leather and knit city dresses and tailored coats with 60s mod lines.

Trends don’t rule in Serafpour’s world. Her wearable, feminine, tasteful-yet-sexy collections have earned her a legion of fans, including Jessica Biel, Lily Collins, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Chloe Sevigny.

Born in Tehran, Iran and raised in Philadelphia, Behnaz Sarafpour attended NYC’s Parsons School of Design. Her career began with Anne Klein, where she worked under Richard Tyler and Narciso Rodriguez. She launched her label with the fall 2001 season, and has wowed the fashion world with her trademark modern elegance ever since.
