Behind the scenes
The journey begins
Decision was made right away, an exciting research started on the process of hand woven textiles. A journey from historic cities of Iran to Guatemala, Vietnam and India.
Today at Hanieh Fashion we are proud to say that all our silk fabrics are hand-dyed and hand-woven. We believe fashion is art. Each piece is made in our London studio with utmost care. Hand skills are used in every step from design to pattern cutting and sewing.
It all started with a walk in the beautiful garden of Niavaran Palace in Terhan, Iran.
Growing up in Tehran this garden is one of my favorite places. On that day there was an exhibition in the palace from the dresses of the former queen of Iran, Shahbanou Farah Pahlavi.
The dresses were made from hand woven textiles. Shahbanou had worn them to formal events to present the art and handicraft of Iran. Each dress looked like a piece of art in my eyes. Details were exquisite. As a textile designer it was a great inspiration.
