Nima Shiraz and Britex Fabrics – Together Again!

Our favorite Bay area Persian clothing designer, Nima Shiraz is now clothing Hollywood actresses! The November 2012 issue of LA Fashion magazine features Shahs of Sunset’s Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, in a delicious lacy custom couture gown constructed from Britex Fabrics’ materials. Delving inside the glossy pages, there is a humongous editorial spread inside of GG wearing five more Nima Shiraz gowns made from Britex materials, and interviews with GG and Nima. We love it when local designers are featured in high fashion magazines, and Nima’s sensuous and glamorous frocks are irresistible!
