Nima Behnoud: Nimany Fashions


Asian-American Designer Showcase

Designer appearance 12:00-3:30 pm

Iranian-American Nima Behnoud utilizes Persian calligraphy in his unique designs, starting from his forays into the experimental garment alteration movement, emblematic of the 1980s Tehran underground. NIMANY was founded with a series of T-shirts illustrated with silkscreened quotes by Persian poets, and has expanded to include accessories and apparel. Rather than focus on the linguistic element of calligraphy, Nima chooses to highlight its visual artistry, telling the story of his culture through fashion, inserting his art into daily life.
