U.P.F.W Day 6: Bahar Shahpar

A U.P/Shahpar collaboration has been long coming. We’ve been looking forward to working with this vivacious, vociferous talent for a long time now, so when Bahar agreed to donate pieces from her collection towards the U.P we were more than thrilled. Producing locally in New York, Bahar Shahpar designs use only ecologically sound materials, minimizing waste and overall energy consumption as much as possible. Fibers are evaluated according to the methods used for their cultivation, processing, and finishing. Vintage trims, natural buttons, and unbleached organic cotton linings are a signature component of almost every Bahar piece. As a special treat, here is a little self-made video journal entry from Bahar, to tell you more in her own words.
