Nima Taherzadeh, Fashion Designer

Nima Taherzadeh

Nima Taherzadeh may be the only Iranian man in the world who can pull off a ponytail. You can’t see it in the photo above, but he’s got one and he wears it well. When I met with him in Chelsea on a lazy Sunday afternoon a few months ago, he was wearing a black hoodie and sneakers, and with his quick clip down the sidewalk to the cafe, he looked like any young New Yorker. But Nima is decidedly not ordinary: he’s only 24, and his Parsons senior thesis collection got picked up by Saks last year. Now he’s designing $900 dresses from his Chelsea studio, but he’s cool enough to say he couldn’t afford them yet either.

His collection, like the dress above, has received a lot of praise for being easy to wear for lots of body types, but beyond that it’s just really beautiful – pretty fabrics, good shapes, versatile. I love the huge tie-collar on the dress here, as it’s such an unexpected twist on the ubiquitous shirt dress and a good example of his style. No doubt his training in interior design and work in fashion trending, on top of studying at Parsons, have given Nima his great eye for wearable, beautiful clothing and really smart business sense. I can’t wait until he gets really big and has collections in lower-end retailers that I can actually buy. I haven’t seen his latest collection (this one’s from last year), but if anyone has, please leave a comment! He doesn’t have a website, but you can read more about him in this Fashion Wire Daily article.
