    I have just recently returned from a 10 day stay in Tehran, where I saw fasion like I would have never guessed in Iran. I have been in touch with quite a few Iranians, and have been aware of the fashion change there, but I was not expecting to find what I found there. The chador has apparently been reinvented…

    I take my hat off to you guys…we here in America are behind you.
