THE CELESTIAL VISION OF SETAREH MOHTAREZ



Upon viewing emerging designer Setareh Mohtarez‘s amazing debut collection, the first adjective that came to mind was: vaginal. Now, I’m usually all for being crass and campy, but I mean this in the classiest, most intrinsic way possible.

Mohtarez’s use of celestial prints lends to thoughts likened to the beginnings of the universe, the place from which we all originated—a sort of primordial birth. Carefully crafted folds of fabric represent the layers of new life blossoming and morphing into a beautiful, delicate, yet strongly defined, woman. The incorporation of bright hues and geometric construction are as equally pleasing to the eye as they are to the brain. This stand-out collection, aptly titled Brightness Dawn, is truly like nothing else I’ve seen—it’s inspiring, intoxicating… invigorating.


I wait with baited breath to see what wonderment is to come from Mohtarez in 2011.

  1. Wow! Setareh Mohtarez designs are really unusual and “celestial-like”! My favorite is the final one you showed that resembles the universe at night – gorgeous! (Just like someone I know!) 🙂

  2. I agree with Cris’ post – the last design is truly celestial.
