Mia Jaffari has released her latest line of clothes, “Waterlillies”, a collection of playful, feminine and chic dresses printed with tropical flowers in a variety of shades of turquoise, blue, lilac, green and yellow, as well as dresses that incorporate the artwork of Monet’s paintings. Floral and arty prints are always a big hit for spring and summer. And Mia injects as usual a bit of playfulness with motifs like ladybirds and a Christian Louboutin heel.
Mia has used 1950’s vintage-inspired cuts, the silhouettes include ballooned, pleated blouses worn under high-waisted skirts, with pockets and draping. She has also used Swarovski crystals, intricate hand embroidery and embellishment on the necklines over the “digi-broidery” to create the feel of oversized embellishments. “Perfect dresses to wear at a tea party or garden party with a flower in one hand and a mocktail in the other” says Mia.
Mia Jaffari is available at Debut in New York, Crème Boutique in Bahrain, S*uce in Dubai and online thru her website. Along with her dresses, these boutiques also carry her “Ladybirds Strawberry” collection, a collection of gorgeous limited edition scarves made from 100 percent silk.
Mia Jafari invites you to bask in a world of enchanted trees dripping with strawberry pink muffins where majestic creatures carry Christian Louboutin heels across endless domes filled with ruby red lipsticks. Colorful Eastern landscapes exploding with iconic perfumes and vintage Cartier.
A graduate from Central Saint Martins, London’s most prestigious art and design school, Mia has wowed the fashionistas with her deliciously playful collection which borrows motifs from modern pop culture like lipsticks, stilettos, gold chains, a Jean Paul Gaultier-style perfume bottle and an Alexander McQueen clutch.
Other designs include traditional oriental motifs that you can admire on Persian carpets. Mia has infused her Persian heritage into her designs through a technique she has invented herself, “digi-broidery”, a process through which she converts beautifully embroidered designs and motifs into digital prints that are easy to transfer onto garments. This technique adds a totally new dimension to her clothing.
Jafari’s scarves have been described as wearable art that dazzles and seduces with their Eastern-harmony-meets-uber-kitsch aesthetic. Although the scarf for most of its history has been used mainly to keep a woman’s hairdo from being spoiled by wind, rain and humidity, today it has become an indispensable fashion accessory.
Thanks to movies like ‘Annie Hall” and designers like Anne Klein and Donna Karan, the scarf took on a casual look that appealed to younger women who were starting to enter the work force in the 1970s. French women are known for their ability to knot, toss, wrap, tie, loop and fold a scarf in an amazing assortment of stylish looks.
Mia’s scarves can be worn and handled effortlessly. Tied around the neck over a simple blouse or even a T-shirt, they will really jazz up your look and flip a casual outfit into a stylish look.
