Tehranis are very fashion conscious and want to look their best, especially in the fashionable northern part of the city. A boom of hot new designers means private maisons are sprouting up around town, dizzying a person as to where to look for the latest trends. Luckily, we’ve got you covered with our list of the best womenswear boutiques in this fashion-forward city.

1. M Zone

Shop, Store

During their “Ladies’ Weekend” events held 3-4 times year, M Zone becomes one of the premiere concept stores in which to shop for local designers. Names like La Femme Studio, Capsul3, and Jute, among others, gather to showcase their latest collections, making this a must-visit venue for an introduction to Iran’s talented fashion designers.

Rosewater House

The handpicked items at Rosewater House make it one of the most carefully curated boutiques that caters to Tehran’s elite. Brands like J Brand, Jimmy Choo, and M Missoni are carried alongside local designers and artists, to create an eclectic mix of western and Persian apparel, jewellery, and home furnishings.

2. Aknoon Gallery

Art Gallery

For the perfect combination of fashion and art, look no further than Aknoon Gallery. It’s stocked with one-of-a-kind shirts, sweaters, manteau (loose gowns) and shawls all with Persian-flavoured motifs and handmade jewellery for the perfect statement piece. Unique art and home accessories make it a one stop shop to style and accessorise yourself and your home.

Mahtab Design

Light, airy fabrics and feminine aesthetics make Mahtab Alavi’s handprinted shawls and manteau a delight. These items put a modern twist on typical Persian symbols and traditional prints commonly seen on rugs from the Qashqai and Bakhtiari tribes. Although visitors must make an appointment to view the collection at the designer’s maison, it might be possible to catch her at local fashion events around town, which are announced on her Instagram page.
