San Francisco, Oct 29th 2013: Fashionable, Sexy, Haute and Naughty Magazine (FSHN) today announced the presence of the first ever complete high fashion editorial, shot in IRAN exclusively for the Magazine by Berkeley, Ca based photographer Afra Pourdad.
FSHN publisher Elisabeth Thieriot said "At FSHN Magazine our mission is to create a publication that transcends global boundaries and the leading publication showcasing emerging designers from all around the world. This editorial featuring the work of 'Zarir Design' and shot by the incredibly talented and courageous Afra Pourdad gives the world a peek behind the iron curtain and lets you see the contradictions and culture of everyday Iran. We are proud to be the magazine which could showcase this amazing editorial."
FSHN Editor in Chief Gautam Goswami (Shankha) said"Afra and I discussed the concept of this editorial before her trip to Iran and the editorial you see here is a culmination of planning and courage of all individuals involved in the actual production. Afra is one of the most talented photographers from the San Francisco Bay and FSHN looks forward to working with her on on many more US and International projects"
The editorial shot in the Tajrish Bazaar, Tehran and at the famous Manouchehri House, Kashan was put together by a team of about 10 people including model, designer, makeup and hair artists, assistants, and the photographer. It aims to showcase the contradictions that exist within Iran today, with the new generation of 20 somethings pushing the boundaries that have defined for them over centuries. Staying with respectable limits of their religion, indigenous fashion in Iran is coming of age.
