Paria Farzaneh

Designer

Paria Farzaneh has built her brand paria /FARZANEH through a fiercely independent exploration of her Iranian heritage. Over the past four seasons, Farzaneh has used her collections to challenge the western perception of Middle Eastern aesthetics, by boldly blurring the lines between the two distinctly different worlds that have informed her experience. Since gradating from London's Ravensbourne University in 2016, Paria has rapidly gained notoriety within the menswear scene, gathering 23 stockists globally. Paria was selected as the British Fashion Council's NEWGEN recipients in 2019 and also nominated for the LVMH Prize 2019, and has been working extensively with Converse on bespoke collaborations as well as creating some of LFWM's most talked about presentations.
