Melissa Losada’s Iran Travel Diary

Throughout my travels I found it intensely interesting to see the fashion of the young women and how they experiment with their veils to reflect a sense of personal style. As a designer, the country offered me a great deal of aesthetic and cultural inspiration and taught me an incredible amount about its rich history. I hope to return to discover more.

The reality is, of course, that a country of more than 80 million people, with a rich history and culture, could never be summarised by a few word-grabs from politicians ideologically ill-disposed to the country.

This might seem a blinding statement of the obvious, but the best way to try to understand a country is to travel there.

A magical carpet ride in Iran

Buying a handmade oriental rug in Iran is the ultimate travel trophy if you can afford it. But until I travelled to Iran myself, I could not fathom the obsession with Persian carpets.
