Design Talks | Fashion Designer Behnaz Sarafpour

Known for her modern elegance and innovative textiles, 2013 National Design Award winner Behnaz Sarafpour debuted her collection in 2001. Sarafpour brought her classic and refined feminine style to the masses in 2006 by joining Target’s GO International line, the first designer to represent the United States in this campaign to merge high fashion and affordable prices. Since then, she has collaborated with Lancôme and Earnest Sewn, and her designs have been exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Museum at FIT, New York. In 2008 her environmental concerns led to the addition of organically produced pieces in the collection, which continues to be designed and produced in New York’s Garment District.
Join Behnaz Sarafpour as she speaks about her process and the inspiration behind her designs with Cara McCarty, Curatorial Director of Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum and guest Marc Karimzadeh, of Women’s Wear Daily.

Behnaz Sarafpour is this year’s National Design Award winner for Fashion Design. Hear her speak about fashion, nightlife and the art of creating a “look.”

The National Design Awards were conceived by the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum to honor lasting achievement in American design. The Awards are bestowed in recognition of excellence, innovation, and enhancement of the quality of life. First launched at the White House in 2000 as an official project of the White House Millennium Council, the annual Awards program celebrates design as a vital humanistic tool in shaping the world, and seeks to increase national awareness of the impact of design through education initiatives.
