British-Iranian Mia Jafari's debut scarf collection

MIA-Jafari-Berrypolitian-i

Since graduating from Goldsmiths with a Distinction MA in Visual Arts, Mia Jafari has been making a name for herself fusing Eastern landscapes with elements of pop art, commodity culture and kitsch.

This spring sees Jafari debut ‘Ladybirds Strawberry Cosmos’, a collection of seductively playful, hand-finished limited edition silk scarves.

Jafari invite you to bask in a world where majestic creatures drag Christian Louboutin heels  across endless domes filled with ruby red lipsticks – where nocturnal, gem-encrusted birds take nightwatch over enchanted trees dripping with strawberry pink muffins…

A wonderlust of Eastern landscapes exploding with iconic perfumes, vintage Cartier and luscious cocktails.

Mia Jafari unveils her collection with ‘digi-broidery’: an innovative technique coined by the artist to describe a truly unique dimension to her work, where Eastern embroidery meets cutting edge digital print. Through this hyper-real aesthetic, Jafari pushes new boundaries to create distinctive prints, rich in cultural reference and craftsmanship.
