    The main thing that got me to Mexico City was the exhibition of a portion of Frida Kahlo’s wardrobe that has been on display in her museum, La Casa Azul, for the past year. Frida has been a major muse and inspiration to me for many years and I have a complete fascination with her life, her spirit and her style. She represents so many important things to me in what it means to be a real woman. She withstood so many hard ships and obstacles in her life and she overcame all of them with such radiance and dignity.

    Jasmin Shokrian has been one of my favorite LA designers since I first moved to Los Angeles 8 years ago. My personal style is complex. I am influenced by many genres and I have always connected to architectural design elements in clothing. From Martin Margiela and Ann Demeulemeester to Yohji Yamamoto- Jasmin Shokrian sits among some of my favorites. What differentiates her from the others is her Los Angeles perspective that delivers a softness and a sense of ease and wearability that some of the above-mentioned have yet to master.
