"My illustrations are combination of modern fashion style with a traditional floral pattern. I have been inspired by traditional Persian flowers and birds pattern (گُل و مرغ) which dates back to the late Zand or early Qajar period (twelfth century AH / eighteenth CE or thirteenth century AH / nineteenth CE). This pattern is the symbol of love and creation. I believe the dynamism and the character of the Persian pattern with flowers and bird, combined with the modern fashion and outfit design can make a beautiful unique balance in the fashion industry. I have also been fascinated by the combination of warm colours in these patterns which bring out the liveliness of the outfit texture. Growing up with beautiful Persian patterns, I have always been so passionate about colours and organic natural shapes since my childhood and always have admired my country's (Iran) history of art and design."
