This year I am fortunate enough to spend Mother’s Day not only with my mom, but also with my grandma, who is visiting from Iran. It has definitely been nice having her, and being that she lives 6,500 miles away, I don’t get to see her too often. It has been about 16 years since I have been there myself, so naturally I enjoy asking about ways in which the city she lives (Tehran) has changed over time. Iran is an Islamic Republic, and being so, women are required to cover themselves in public. But that doesn’t stop them from expressing themselves through fashion. With an endless array of colors hanging from the walls in their bazaars, to the beautiful Alborz Mountains, the city of Tehran creates the perfect backdrop for any fashion photoshoot.
