Nima Shiraz Takes Britex to LA

For many years, Britex has had the honor of being a hotspot for fashion designer Nima Shiraz. We pile amazing fabrics and trims in his arms, send him on his way, and then pouf! He has transformed our items into breathtaking high fashion. This last month we have watched as Nima bought out an entire color of our Swarovski crystal collection, leather and velvet, and lace. And then, we found out what it was for. At the beginning of this month, there was a tribute concert for David Lynch and his foundation to teach Transcendental Meditation. And Nima was making a catsuit for one of the performers, the gorgeous Chrysta Bell.
