Known for her modern elegance and innovative textiles, Iranian-born Behnaz Sarafpour debuted her collection in 2001. Sarafpour brought her classic and refined feminine style to the masses in 2006 by joining Target’s GO International line, the first designer to represent the United States in this campaign to merge high fashion and affordable prices. Since then, she has collaborated with Lancôme and Earnest Sewn, and her designs have been exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Museum at FIT. In 2008 her environmental concerns led to the addition of organically produced pieces in the collection, which continues to be designed and produced in New York’s Garment District. Prior to launching her label, Sarafpour worked with Narciso Rodriguez, Isaac Mizrahi, and held the post of Head Designer of the Barneys New York private collection.
