In Farsi ( Persian language ) they read and write from right to left. "Anar" is a mirror of "Rana" and it means "Pomegranate" which is Rana's favorite fruit. Anar-Couture draws anybody's passion for fashionable clothes and special designs that accentuate your specific requirement.
Rana Ghezelayagh, Iranian born, has been reinventing herself alongside her inspiring functional fashion designs since her arrival to the United States. Her sustainable designs celebrate her roots in Middle Eastern culture with class and innovation. Rana’s distinctive couture captures the essence of architecture and beauty. Designing and creating attire that is functional yet contemporary with sophistication is Rana’s dream.
Rana’s formal training at the International Academy of Design and Technology in Seattle, along with years of experience freelance designing, set her apart with out-of-the-box creativity and functionality. One of her most memorable accomplishments was modeling her own designed and hand-made bridal gown in the “Imagine” 2009 fashion show in Seattle.
The philosophy which builds and sustains Rana’s creative energy is found in the human body and the celebration of women’s power. Her convictions set the tone for her fashion statements in that a woman’s body can be seductive and powerful without being over exposed. She believes the feminine silhouette is not just about the apparent beauty of women, but a source of strength and confidence. Her style of using beautiful and colorful patterned lining in her first collection, which included 20 trench coat dresses, reflects this inner beauty of a woman. Her second collection, which is a sustainable and reversible accessory line of obi belts, scarves, ponchos, and kimonos, effectively dazzles the eye while expressing her vision of women’s elegance and class both inside out.
Rana’s imagination and ingenuity can be sparked by color and texture. If you have a special color scheme or fabric texture, she will custom design and create a unique, modern, and exotic look that belongs to you, set to no specific era or location.
