Nobi Talai-Story telling of a modern nomad


t the crossroads between  Occident and Orient, Nobi Talai is a breath of fresh air.   Berlin based /Tehran born designer, Nobi Talai digs deep into her roots and includes her heritage into each piece of the collection.

Her designs are not only skillfully crafted as a piece of work but they also reflect into the past in a retrospective anthology of fashion.

The collections of Nobi Talai tell stories of modern nomads,  Collaborating with Swarosvski, over 18,000 crystals have been hand-embroided onto garments that swing from urban to spectacular.


We attended her Spring/ Summer 2018 collection presented during Paris Fashion Week and we were happily surprised to see the young designer engraving her name into the fashion world by offering a fresh look into it.

A flare of Persian bridal and a sharp contrast of a strong modernist aspect is well played in the collection.  Complex constructions in tulle and organza complimented the looks.

Lines, circles and squares not only influenced this season of Nobi Talai collection but also appeared on the surface in geometrically patterned textiles or go 3d via all manner of pleats and folds even on leather.
