Brooklyn-based Bahar Shahpar is a self-taught designer with a diverse creative background in multimedia event production, fashion, and publishing. Previously, she has owned an art gallery and designed custom accessories in London and New York. In 2005, she debuted her first womenswear line, agricult, inspired by the American frontier.
For Spring/Summer 2007, Bahar launched her eponymous label, focusing on a more modern, less structured form while still drawing from an Edwardian aesthetic. She was featured as part of domino magazine’s 2007 Green List and has been profiled in Lucky, NYLON, ELLE, and WWD.
