Most women strive to get that extra something that differentiates their personal style from everyone else. We all want to be timeless and striking but in a complete category of our own. So we’re very pleased that Persian style, in particular, just got some lovely coverage in the latest issue of Vogue. It goes through an eclectic list of fashionably dressed Persian women from past to present. We are especially taken with Caroline Issa, who continuously chooses big, bold patterns and interesting details. For a more traditionally Persian approach to style, film maker Shirin Neshat goes along the the traditional route of black-rimmed eyes and embellished clothing.
