Fashion Is Freedom : How a Girl from Tehran Broke the Rules to Change her World Paperback / softback

Description

When she was 16, Tala Raassi went to a party. She talked to boys, and wore a mini-skirt. She was punished with 40 lashes and five days in jail. Growing up in Tehran, Tala learnt to use fashion as a getaway whenever she suffered from the restrictions of her society.

Labeled a rebel with a propensity to break the rules, she quickly came to realise being hungry for freedom in Iran was a recipe for disaster.

Tala's lashes served as a stark warning to her - she needed to escape.

Moving to the USA, she was able to develop her own clothing label to massive success.

But the cut-throat world of Western fashion wasn't exactly how she had imagined it.

She witnessed first-hand the ups and downs of hard work, hard decisions, and hard truths.

Fashion Is Freedom is an inspiring true story of how courage, a dream, and some needle and thread can change a life forever...
