BEHNAZ SARAFPOUR

Makes clothes horses of the highest pedigree hot to trot.
Behnaz Sarafpour cut her teeth working alongside Anne Klein, Isaac Mizrahi, and Narciso Rodriguez before launching her own line in 2001 while maintaining a design position at Barneys New York. Her striking A-lines, cinched waists, and strong shoulders are equally modern and classic, strong and feminine, and have earned support from esteemed fashion editors, celebrities, and major retailers. Previously, she attended Parsons School of Design where she received the prestigious Golden Thimble Award.

Behnaz said, “My idea of feminine has never been frilly and sweet.”
